Not certain if massive rapid development of the area was expected and civic planners were getting a jump on things, or if it was some payback in Congress for a vote, or whatever.
It reminded me of the Blazing Saddles scene in which the good guys placed a toll booth in the middle of the desert to delay the arrival of a gang of bad guys.
Maybe now that it's 5 years later, the roundabout there makes more sense than it did then.





















SOL,
I meant to give you credit for the artistic eye, not Jonwvara...but I guess you can share, I am sure Jonwvara won't mind.
Best, Ben
