Forrest block project delayed, not dead -QCTimes
I know there were a lot of people wondering what was up with this project during Bix weekend. It would have been nice to have had an article in the Bix Sunday paper explaining to all the out-of-towners what the deal was. I was pretty sure this project was still on track, but its nice to see more official confirmation.
And in the random links category, thanks to Ask QCOnline for pointing out a pretty cool website, Bridges of the Upper Mississippi. I spent almost half an hour checking out bridges between Red Wing, Minnesota and Cairo, Illinois. Seeing some of the neat designs really makes you wonder how they managed to pick such a boring bridge for the I-80 crossing, considering the number of vehicles that use that daily. The design for the new I-74 bridge puts most of them to shame at least.
