New drain grates to be installed to replace old "bike killers"

These new grates will replace the old ones along Presidential drive by UMUC. These reduce the chance of a “diversion” crash where bikers topple over due to immobilization of the wheel. This new pattern has holes small enough for even a street bike to ride over while still allowed proper water flow.

Here are photos of the ones slated to be replaced.
