26th Street Maze

Roads and Construction

Anyone else been tricked by the N 26th & Stevens detour game?  It probably only works at night when you can't see very far.


Heading northbound and planning to turn right on N 26th, I was met with a giant road closed sign, so I continued to 27th and turned right.  When I got to Mason I looked to my right and saw that 26th was accessible, so I turned.  At 26th, I started to turn left and found myself another giant road closed sign, so I veered straight onto the left side of the split-tail design Mason (this makes you feel like you're going the wrong way on a one-way) and then I finally turned left on 25th and rode that safely all the way to Metro.

Later Tuesday..

I witnessed a young lady do the same thing I had done earlier.  I found this wildly amusing -- it was not amusing in the slightest whilst it was happening to me.


Road closed signs were still in place; no sign of work done in the area.  Another driver was spotted confused and feeling their way around the area, yearning for Proctor, but stuck on Stevens.

I know the Freitaii often tread those waters..  Somebody out there must have shared this experience with me?

Haha, you should make a Keystone Cops style video! Yea, I drove by there the other day but haven't had to make the jaunt from that direction. Now I know better to avoid it completely. Ick.
