Chris Rodkey: By the way, it’s always a treat to have a shift in the Lake City, but good God … who designed the streets in that town? Seriously! If I didn’t have a pretty good map, how on Earth would you know how to get to the Ponderosa Springs golf course?! Why can’t there be straight lines and direct streets?! I’m debating whether CDA is worse than Missoula for street design.
DFO: Chris, if you really want to scratch your head, take Seventh from Sherman Avenue and head north. You’ll find that Seventh runs out of alignment as it crosses Harrison and then as it crosses Locust. Someone was asleep at the switch when that road was laid out. Indeed, you have to run another obstacle course to find Ponderosa Golf Course. Then, you can blame this misalignments on the city’s forefathers. However, Coeur d’Alene Place is a logistical nightmare for anyone without one of those auto guidance system. And that’s relatively new. Lining things up doesn’t seem to be a priority here.
