What's the giant tower crane in the front yard of the TMC inpatient building? It almost looks like they would be adding on vertically?

Re: New Broadway Bridge

The Oak and Rockhill bridges over Brush Creek are good examples of basic concrete bridges with cosmetic upgrades to make them aesthetically pleasing. The steel railings give the impression of graceful suspension bridges.

Re: 29 Belleview Town Homes

There was a group out picketing this site yesterday, decrying "gentrification" and saying they want nothing built here. These look to be very modest units and I would guess not expensive to rent. How can building on a long vacant overgrown lot be gentrification?

Probably exterior fire sprinkler. Union Hill had same problem and they had to put a grate allowing room air into the chase that held the supply pipe.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

The 169 northbound as it connects onto the bridge appears to be a fairly severe dog leg. The Broadway ramp onto the bridge merges/yields right past this. What is the speed limit going to be?

At first I was leery of the giant TV on top, thought it was going to be used for banal advertising. They are using it for artist designed kinetic art that is quite beautiful.
