In today’s Old Mission Peninsula road news, there’s a giant hole in Neahtawanta Road by the Bowers Harbor Boat Launch.
When I stopped by there yesterday to get some photos, the neighborhood locals I chatted with said it seemed like something just “broke,” as in the water drainage system (a rusted culvert perhaps?). The night before – Friday night – the road flooded with water and was ultimately shut down.

We went by there today and nothing has been repaired at this point, but it’s still shut down. Take a look at a few photos. In the first photo below, I didn’t see any light there, but also couldn’t see the back of the “cave.”
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
