4th Street Bike Boulevarders: Your Long Intersectional Nightmare Is Over!

It’s been going on four freaking months since the intersection of 4th Street and Muirfield in Hancock Park was torn up something nasty and then left in a condition that might not be noticeable to anyone speeding over it in a Lexus or Range Rover, but to anyone on two wheels who’s had no choice but to endure biking across that bumpy rutted deplorable hellaciousness, it’s been a pain that seemed like it would never end.

Until today! Finally, as of this morning and seen in the following photo, the intersection is being repaved. I think I just might cry the first time rolling over its billiard table smoothness.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
