    I agree with this. I almost ran off the pavement as I was coming through there the first time, as the straw makes it hard to tell where the pavement ends. I can't imagine adding a little more pavement would have added but a trivial amount of money to the project.

    "Where is that triangle they were talking about at Coffee Club?"

    "Wait, did I just flat?"

    "Oh, that's the triangle they were talking about, glad I didn't flat"

    I had the same thought. Enough so that I wonder if they're planning on relocating the whole huge sign superstructure that spans the highway. That would get the post out of the middle of the trail. Dare to dream. I still can't believe that cyclists careening down those steps isn't a daily occurrence.

    At least the new curb cuts that discharge onto East Basin Drive south of the Jefferson are wider. You can actually almost execute the turn.

    My understanding is that NPS plans to redo all the signs on the bridge within - not sure, the next decade I guess - and when that is done, the post in the trail will be moved. Not sooner.

    I am more than happy that no one went *down* the stairs during my shop rides! Especially at night!

    Which will, no doubt, involve repaving the ramp ...
