Would Somebody Please Take Care of the Hanging Pole on 86th Ave?

For at least 3 months, a partial telephone pole has been hanging out on 86th ave. just north of 47th street.

Let’s take a closer look:

Apparently the power company says it’s the phone company’s fault, and the phone company says it’s the power company’s fault. The fault may not be clear, but the laws of gravity are.  Also clear is that electrical wires are not structural elements. The fall windstorms are coming, and I think the force of the winds might be too much for the hanging pole.

Sometimes brave souls park their cars under it. I wouldn’t even walk under it.  But there you have it: the hanging pole of Mercer Island.
