Lowell Point Road can be a dangerous drive. In the winter, it’s avalanches. When the snow melts, it’s rock slides. A rock “moat” collects some of the gravel and rocks along the largest slide area, but every day, large and small rocks bounce over onto the roadway. At times the debris blocks the road, requiring heavy equipment to remove it.
The question is not, “How safe is Lowell Point Road?” but “When is someone going to get hurt?” The borough and city need to address this serious issue ASAP. Locals and unsuspecting visitors should not have to play Rock Roulette while driving, walking, and biking to and from Lowell Point.
