Unintended Traffic Calming

Very early Tuesday morning an underground water main burst on the street outside our building, flooding the street and creating a small sinkhole. First to respond to the situation was a water department foreman. Then came tow trucks to remove parked cars. Lastly came water department workers with jackhammers. Very loud at 3am!

When I left for work, the water department were covering the hole with a trench plate. On the other side of the street Comcast work trucks were double parked. The combination of Comcast and SF Water Dept created a chicane outside our building, that had a excellent calming effect on street traffic.
