Friday Filler -- Fill Dirt, That Is


So, it's been a few weeks since we updated our ongoing photo documentary on Highway 40 re-construction.

Here's the scene today in Richmond Heights as viewed from the Boland Place overpass looking east toward Big Bend Boulevard.

As you can see from the photo below, the crew has moved a few dirt piles around since last time we photographed the constriction site back on March 19. They've also moved several pickup trucks and other vehicles. 

How exciting, no? No!?

Well, someday when the construction is finished you'll say to yourself: "Golly, I remember seeing photos of the highway when it was nothing but a dirt path." Yep. You will. You'll see.
