Road Hazard -- Some oil road 2600 NW corner of California Ave & Logan Blvd

I've contacted 911 who connected me to Streets & Sanitation to report some oil on California Ave, the NE corner next to corner building being remodeled. I was riding southbound on California and fairly slowly when I braked at the light and my bike went out from under me. I've got a sore hand and wrist, but fortunately am okay.I don't know if the police or anyone will clean this spot up any time soon, but be cautious at this intersection. See More
