So Long to the Barricades/Planters/Sewer Pipes
Just over six months ago, the City Street Department placed barricades at a number of locations on the streets in Ward 20 and Ward 9.
Today I noticed the barricade on Nebraska immediately north of Juniata has already been removed.
The one on Texas immediately south of Gravois was being taken out by street department crews earlier this morning. So it's probably gone by now.
I wonder whether the experiment was deemed less successful than expected, or if indeed it was only planned to last six months, as the ordinance suggested?
In some areas of the city, these kinds of barricades - called "planters" by some but really just concrete sections of sewer pipe - have been in place for years.
