Hi everyone-

I'm back again with another update here. As we saw the last full update, Grevano Drive was being torn up as part of a widening project. This is where we last left it:

Here's the map of the tile again for reference:

Here's more pics of the project site from Phase 2, between Cubit Lane and Ballast Drive:

You can see in this pic that Cubit Lane is being widened at the Grevano Drive intersection as well.

(Edit: Thanks, bat, for noticing the missing bracket. The pic is now fixed as of 10:50am PDT, 1/15)

The road is now widened and following a much more direct alignment:

And now onto the really fun part . . . Grevano Drive's new interchange with the new Highway 4/61:

Work's already begun here. You can see the vague outline of one of the ramps:

A few more houses had to be torn out for the right-of-way:

The ramps to Southbound 61:

An overview shot, showing some of the improvements to Grevano Drive as well as more of the interchange. Obviously, there's still quite a bit of work to do here, but the most important parts are done.

And that's Update 20. Thanks for all your continued support--I'm just thrilled to be in the Classics section now, and I couldn't have done it without all of you, so thanks! smiley.gif I'll be back with more work on the new freeway next time, as well as replies. And maybe another surprise . . .

. . . like a mapping tutorial . . .
