Your intrepid blogger braved the early morning start to walk through the construction battle zone that has raged for years in New Haven: the confluence of 3 highways (including the evil I95) over a tiny, placid river called the Quinnipiac. The massive bridge needed to make all this highway havoc come together spaghettis over the Q River, and the construction that started in 2009 to improve the chaos will finally wrap up late next year.
Given the opportunity to try to understand it all, I joined a meet-up group of hearty souls, some with much better understanding of engineering that I could ever have. But I reveled in the photo ops. The detritus. The equipment. The patterns. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
I asked about the noise working on site and was informed that the traffic makes worse noise than the equipment. Regardless, the geese don’t seem to mind a bit.
