Video ~ "D" Street Overpass to Dock Street

Though I can't be at today's ribbon cutting (busy at work) I thought I'd share a vision of what it's like to drive over the new "D" Street overpass. It's actually an absolutely stunning locale and, thankfully, it's been sidewalked with plenty of options for enjoying. Why enjoy an overpass? Well, I'd say it probably has the most stunning views of downtown Tacoma of anywhere. The sidewalk rolls and eddies with opportunities to learn a little about the local industrial and maritime heritage and also benches to sit, reflect, and enjoy the stunning vista.



Congratulations to the crews for doing a great job and to the designers for avoiding this being just another utilitarian hunk of concrete. This new connection's quality and character is deserved of the two areas of Tacoma it connects.

Nice video.

I like the way the road sounds: smooth and free of holes. Best to enjoy it while it lasts.

It makes for a really nice ride on the scooter, that's for sure. Smooth road plus amazing views of downtown.

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
