(If you haven't snuck a peek into the Virginia Avenue Tunnel construction visible from the 4th Street temporary decking, my camera has done it for you. This is a portion of the new second tunnel--once it's completed, then the old original tunnel will be rehabbed and expanded.)
While I was away late last week, CSX finished the temporary decking on 3rd Street SE and reopened to two-way traffic the stretch between the north side of the freeway and I Street.
This means that if you're coming south from Capitol Hill, you can once again proceed under the freeway at 3rd Street, rather than having to either detour over to 4th Street or be forced onto the freeway ramp.
Speaking of temporary decks, it's now been announced that, as early as May 2, 7th Street SE will be closed at its intersection with Virginia Avenue for 2-3 weeks to build that deck.
Note: Virginia Avenue won't be closed at 7th. There will still be a single lane of eastbound traffic on Virginia through the 7th Street intersection, and traffic will still be able to turn to and from Virginia from the section of 7th north of Virginia--it's just the block of 7th between Virginia and L that will be losing any access to Virginia or points north. Detour signs for the closed section of 7th will send vehicles over to 8th Street.
There will be a path available for pedestrians to use 7th throughout the period that the street is closed.
Here's the CSX graphics about 7th Street, from this document:
Also, CSX has posted the presentation boards from its most recent quarterly open house. The next "Coffee with Chuck" will be on May 18, and the next quarterly open house on July 21.
Eleven months down, 31 to go....

And I guess nobody noticed that the vast majority of the blog posts (other than the most recent one) have been broken for the past five days or so? I guess since we were commenting on the non-broken most recent one, and the main home page was working, the commentariat probably wasn't trying to pull up any of the other posts.

Anyway, it's fixed now. Heaven forbid I can leave town for a few days without something going wrong on the site...!

I remember having to be in charge of a site and leaving the country for the first time... I was stressed out!

But yeah, I didn't notice and I check at least once a day!

Three weeks of driving another block or so won't be too bad.

The worst of my web site woes have always come in March or April, when I've been down in Florida visiting my parents. I noticed on my way down last week that I was starting to have flashbacks--maybe my subconscious was trying to tell me something.

In other news, the Bixby has launched a real web site:

But if you see a, ahem, different, more prominent link to it on my site, feel free to click that one instead. :)
