• Bonus: Hazel Park

    I really don’t have an excuse for delaying this post so long, considering I rode across all the pedestrian bridges in Hazel Park ten days ago on the morning of 12 June. My route started at my partner’s house, which is only a couple blocks from Hazel Park’s Green Acres Park and Invest Roosevelt High School. The Browning Avenue pedestrian bridge, the northernmost in Hazel Park, connects that park and school with the neighbourhood across I-75 to its east.

  • I-94 Westside

    Last Saturday (6 June), I re-attempted 24 May’s ride on a morning with more pleasant weather. I completed it this time and didn’t bother to re-photograph the Roosevelt Avenue bridge, which makes Tarnów Street the first bridge documented on this ride. I believe the street is named for the Polish city, since it’s next to Chopin Street which is most likely named for the Polish composer. Detroit has a long history of Polish immigration, and there’s even a West Side Detroit Polish American Historical Society.

  • Southfield Freeway + Bagley Pedestrian Bridge

    Last Saturday (30 May), I picked up my friend Nixill’s Kroger order for him, then we took a car trip down the Southfield Freeway to document the pedbridges there. Nix wants to build his aerial photography portfolio, and we both saw a Pedbridge Project trip as a good way to do that.

  • Lodge Freeway and Holden Street

    This morning, I had to go to Henry Ford Hospital to have blood work done, a Post Office to drop off a couple packages, and Whole Foods Market to blow like $70 in gift cards on food and nice body care supplies I wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford. I was finished at the hospital around 8:40 and had a few minutes to kill before the Post Office on Milwaukee opened at 9:00, so I was able to detour a bit, pass a townhouse complex named for the real McCoy, and cross a pedbridge in an area that’s quite secluded considering its proximity to New Center, Midtown, and Henry Ford Hospital.

  • I-94 and Roosevelt

    I was going to ride from home to Trenton Street and back, to hit the Roosevelt, Tarnow, Lumley, and Trenton bridges across I-94. I gave up at McGraw/Livernois, however, because I was really hot and riding into a headwind. I’m not used to riding in 28°C temperatures.
