Metro/Caltrans Fails Riders at I-405/Wilshire

In the ongoing saga of hazardous I-405 construction impacts we’d like to file this gem for your consideration: a poorly-filled trench running alongside Sepulveda that seems tailor-made to bust a rear rack. That’s what happened to us anyway: we lost our load of groceries as this sharp-edged beastie knocked us out of the saddle. We did keep our balance but sacrificed a prized quart of Bay Cities pasta sauce. It could have been worse: with a bottom fully 2-3 inches lower than the boulevard surface we could have lost a rim or a nut. We’ll let you know when Metro/Caltrans fills this one properly.
