Double Entendre

The city of Overland Park is putting up a few new mile markers on the Indian Creek Trail. They look nice; but I have to wonder if the new Mile 3 marker was intended to be a traffic calming measure or not.

The marker is just to the side of the bridge that goes over the trail just north of Suburban Lawn & Garden on Roe. As you head north over the bridge, you have to make a very sharp turn to double back and go under the bridge.

I've seen a lot of folks come off the bridge and swing wide into the grass, especially if there is another bike or pedestrian coming up from below.

So, the person that positioned this post either wasn't thinking things through ... or they are a genius. I haven't decided.
