US 59 Ribbon Cutting

Technically, this is old news, but I’ll go ahead and post it anyway. Back on September 18, Public officials had a ceremonial ribbon cutting for the new US 59 freeway at Baldwin Junction. Here are my photos:

November already?

For being without a day job, it seems I’ve been rather busy….

October brought a pair of “Special” Amtrak trains, and a new interchange on K-7 in Johnson County.

Roadgeek Meet Photos (+ a bonus)

Last Saturday, I had a small group of fellow road enthusiests in Lawrence for a “roadgeek meet.” Basically, we all get together and had lunch, then toured the area roads. For this meet, I chose K-10, US 59, and the new Kansas Turnpike Bridge. I don’t have any pics from the latter. During our outing, I spotted a gaffe on US 59. I did not get a picture during the meet; however, I was able to return to get a picture on Monday.
