Meridian of junk

The meridian of Highway 82 between Cozy Point and where it ends toward the garbage dump has looked like an auxiliary dump all summer. Someone has backed up a truck full of junk and dumped it under a tree toward the end of the grassy meridian, heading downvalley.

It has blown around, and other people have just randomly dumped junk in that meridian. I’ve complained to CDOT twice and it still sits there.

That stretch of Highway 82 is beginning to look like some areas I’ve been through in Third World countries. I’m surprised, in an area like this, that the situation has gone unnoticed.
