For as long as we have lived here, the section of Beck Street between Mohawk and Lazelle has been the bumpiest roadway in German Village, by far. I’m guessing that’s because it’s one of the most used streets — being the standard route many people take when leaving the Lindey’s restaurant — but it got to the point that the stretch was so jarring and unpleasant that Kish and I simply wouldn’t use it. Why break an axle or risk suffering minor internal damage when smoother alternatives are available?
So I was glad to see the “road closed” signs go up, and the work begin on debumpifying Beck’s bricks. At least, I sure hope that’s what they’re doing.
