I was looking at a magnified view of a tricky intersection on my route
home from Fort Wayen next Tuesday, and noticed that the median of the crossing was labeled "Dupont Road Trail".
So I opened the sidebar and clicked on "bicycling". Sure enough, the
median lit up green. Having already established that all I will be
able to do is to grit my teeth and pray that I take the correct left
exit to stay on Dupont Road, I followed the trail to the end, which
was in the middle of a five-lane road.
Noticing that the "trail" on the south side of Dupont continued, I backtracked and followed that one to its end -- at the intersection of
two five-lane roads.
Then I traced back to its beginning at Woodland Plaza Parkway.
Appropriately, there is a funeral home on the corner.
There's a weaving term for what Dupont does at the intersection, where
the westbound lanes have been lifted up and crossed over the eastbound
lanes for a short distance.
Ah! I think it's "leno".
Nope. The Wikipedia article says leno is worked on weft threads, and
what I'm thinking of can be worked only on warp threads. The picture
looks similar, but the threads are twisted, not bootlaced.
And the picture looks a lot like "twining". Is, perhaps, the Wikip a
teeny bit off?
Just took another look at Google Maps. The trail on the south side of
Dupont does not connect to the trail on the north side. But the one
on the north side begins on the south side and crosses over at the
It's rather a pity that I won't be able to spare any attention to look
at the MUP.
