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.
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.|
