Eyesore of the Month
Thanks to David Banks of Mirimar, Florida, who sent in this nomination. David writes:
"This six lane, double turn lane, mega-intersection / death-
trap is the intersection of University Drive and Pembroke Road. What
I love about it are the features that border this monstrosity. On
the southwest, is a Wal-Mart. The southeast contains a
subdivision built just post WWII, and is one of the first pure
bedroom "communities" in Florida. The Northeast has a small airport
that houses the blimps and airplanes that participate in the
marketing orgy that always occurs at Dolphin's stadium. But the
northwest is by far, my favorite corner. It has a DMV
next to a mental institution, which is next to a geriatric retention
center (retirement home), which is next to the main southern hub for
the Broward County School Bus system."
Actually, close inspection of the original humungus photo indicates this is six lanes in each direction (twelve lanes in all) . Apparently, it's so new that the signage hasn't yet been installed on that massive aluminum pole structure thang.
