A few weeks ago, the skin off the top of a well-trafficked portion of Haskell Avenue in East Dallas suddenly disappeared. It still hasn't come back. Pictured above is the disfigured Haskell Avenue that has been left behind. When you are driving on thick, fully-paved streets this weekend, don't forget the less fortunate streets like Haskell.
The dramatic elevation change is a reminder of where cars used to be on the other side of Ross, and how low they've sunken since. Go over this dip slowly or it will screw up your car.
If you want to help, please bring any size of asphalt chunk you have to the 1700 block of Haskell Avenue. Together we can repair this tire-killer about as well as Dallas repaired the pot hole from hell.
