My intellectual words become physical concrete

I noticed a sidewalk trip hazard on the south side of West Saint Marie Street between Carver Avenue and Dunedin Avenue in Duluth, Minnesota.  

This hazard was there for at least three years and was a hazard for bicyclists, those with reduced walking mobility, and wheelchair users.  

I photographed the hazard and then wrote an opinion letter for the Duluth New Tribune.  This is the letter that was published.

A few days ago, the defective sidewalk slabs were replaced with new sidewalk.

I wonder how many other such sidewalk hazards exist, but no one calls attention to these?
