New neighborhood....same problems
I've moved within the same general neighborhood, about 5 blocks from my old residence...but some things in Midland don't seem to change. Like the condition of the streets. The photos above don't adequately capture the depth of this gulley between at the intersection of "J" and Princeton streets. I've driven thru this intersection for decades and the condition has not changed. Well, yes it has, it's gotten worse.
This is the type of street condition, that if one is driving even under the speed limit, the oil pan of the car will "bottom out" on this chasm. As you can see, the condition is so bad, that the asphalt is completely gone revealing the original coblestones I surmise are from the Roman period.
