Alter & Canfield

While we’re talking about problems with trash & utilities, has anyone driven down Alter Rd from I-94 to Jefferson? For the past month (since Thanksgiving) there has been a busted water main on the corner of Alter & Canfield. I wish I had a digital camera so I could upload the picture of the small (6″ high geyser) that has developed and is there every time I drive by. The City of Detroit Water Department has been kind enough to place a pylon next to it so that cars don’t drive in the soon-to-be sink hole. There aren’t a whole lot of houses in the neighborhood to the west of Alter but the ones that are still standing probably have horribly flooded basements.

They have yet to place a steel plate over it, like half of the other potholes and road problems around town.
