It looks like one of the oddest mishaps in city planning history, a power pole sticking directly out of a newly paved road in Spokane Valley. Resident of the area Anthony Davis Jr posted the picture on Facebook looking for answers.
It turns out the incident, while totally unusual, was planned in advance. The city of Spokane Valley reportedly wanted to get the road paved before winter fully hit, but couldn't get all the companies using the pole out to move their wires over quickly enough. So instead of waiting for the freeze they decided to pave around it and say the pole will be removed and hole filled in as early as next week.
