Thanks for the advance notice, but then perhaps this is a bit too far in advance?
This sign on Albany’s Salem Avenue barely registered with me when I rode past it on Sunday afternoon. But then: “Wait a minute. What walking path? And why should it be closed?”
So I circled back for a second look. Aha! A prank, obviously. Or more likely, a theft from the street department in Corvallis.
Whoever took the thing and set it up on Salem Avenue, let me suggest you put it back in your truck and return it to wherever you swiped it in Corvallis.
Do it before a bunch of people are caught unaware of this path closure, which may force them into a detour they did not expect and do not want. Especially if their feet are already sore. (hh)
