Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 241: Infrastructure Improvements on R Street

We recently noticed that several blocks on R Street are closed for construction.  Apparently, this closure of R Street between 16th & 18th Streets, leading up to the R Street Market (and our local Safeway) is part of the ongoing infrastructure improvements along the R Street Corridor that are intended to make this part of the neighborhood friendlier to pedestrians, bikes, and private developers.

Here's an aerial shot of how these blocks looked before the work began:

And these are renderings of how it will (hopefully) look after the work is completed next June:
