Beware the steel plates on Marshall

From Melissa on the CHPN Facebook:

Heads up: steel plate on Marshall near the new apartment complex by the animal hospital appears to be sunken in and unstable. Non emergency police called but be aware.

From Mark last week:

Over 6 months ago, a sink hole [at 22nd and Marshall] was fixed with a metal plate. It is on a bus route, so after 6 months of it getting hit, it’s moved about 2 feet. It’s created an actual unmarked speed bump, and the vibrations are literally tearing my house apart.

It’s started detaching my staircase from my wall, split the posts on the fence around my yard and caused the floors on my house to drop .5 inches so far.

I’ve been emailing the city every day along with my neighbors (who are suffering similar hardships)

The incredible thing is we got the race organizers this past weekend to leave a cone in it and traffic diverted. The city sent someone to pick it up!

Any advice you may have would be welcomed and appreciated.
