Snow removal and sidewalks

sidewalk on Curry southbound near Paiute

Snow removal after the recent small snowstorm seemed to me to go pretty well. I checked a number of streets where snow plows last year had pushed snow onto sidewalks, and I saw only one area where this happened this year – on Curry St between Rhodes St and Clearview Dr (photo at right). Did you see any problems? If so, please comment or email Dan Allison, dan at musclepowered dot org. Please be as specific as possible about streets, cross streets, and/or addresses. If you have photos, great.

I am not asking about places where bike lanes, shoulders, or multi-use paths were not cleared. This is also an issue of concern, but I want to focus for now on the higher priority sidewalk issue. After all, bikes can take the lane, but pedestrians have no safe alternatives.
