Yes, I admit I’m one of those a-holes who try to drive on just any old street that suits me. So when the route that I’d take when exiting the 2 to get to Silverlake Blvd was blocked off last fall, I simply did what water does … found the next most logical route.
Today we drove up Baxter towards Apex only to find that route now blocked too. (I don’t know how long it’s been like that, I actually don’t try to go that way more than twice a month so I can legitimately claim that I wasn’t part of the major traffic problem to begin with and I do live in the neighborhood, albiet on the other side of Silverlake Blvd.)
You want to know a secret … you can just make a U turn at the intersection of Baxter (as the two people did after us) and then go back to Waterloo and make a right.
