Outdoor Wednesday ~ Under Construction

more about our town...
This is what we pass each day!
Big equipment and materials needed to build an overpass
to reduce traffic congestion is positioned as construction progresses
where two heavily traveled roads intersect.
The circle is being eliminated and work is continuing in this much needed project.
Even during this massive project, traffic delays seem to be at a minimum.
The following statistics and photos below from this source:
With travel delays between 7 to 10 minutes through the circle and this being the #2 site for total accidents in the entire state, and a projected 110,000 vehicles per day traveling through the intersection, there is a need to improve operating conditions at the Route 70 and Route 73 intersection
The project is currently in the early stages of construction.. Construction is scheduled for completion by the Fall/Winter of 2011.

Wow, the before picture looks like quite a mess. Around Kansas City we always have some kind of road construction project going on.

What a project! I think it's something that goes on constantly across America. It started here in Utah about 15 yrs. ago and has never ended! :D

You did very well on the construction sites. We have so much of that going on, you hardly enjoy going out. Great idea for today's post.

Oh boy! I sure can relate to those views. We have a lot of construction going on around here and in the areas I have to travel. Some of the projects will not be completed until 2014!
Unbelievable!

wow what a difference that will be when it's completed. Now why didn't they just think of that plan when they first did it :)

Oh I remember those famous "circles" in NJ! What were they thinking when they designed them? I remember my father driving through them and he would get confused and say it was a silly way to have a traffic pattern. And I agree! Hope it gets done sooner than they're predicting!
