Of the 10 clients, there was a group of six from Canada. They had ridden state Route 313 a day or two earlier and noticed a gap in a cattle guard at about mile 13. It was located on the downhill side of the highway on the shoulder side of the white line, right where bicyclists tend to ride and where they could be clipping along at a pretty good speed. It was about three inches wide. If a rider didn’t see it in time, the entire front of a bike would fall into the gap with disastrous consequences. We tried to move the cattle guard over a bit to close the gap. It was way too heavy.
Later that day, I called and left a couple of messages with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) about the hazard. Today, Monday, I received a call from a gentleman from UDOT informing me that the problem had been taken care of, and a permanent fix was in the works. That made my day, and I thanked him profusely.
Is Moab a great place to live or what?
