    "An open house for the pedestrian bridge project is scheduled for Feb. 11 from 6-8 p.m., in which nearby civic associations will be invited, though the location of the open house was not announced. Staff said renderings for the bridge will be available at the open house."

    Here is where you can get all your questions answered. But wait! You have to be invited, to some undisclosed location... So I guess it's not really an open house.

    Ha! It's never too soon for a new bike, but I'd much prefer it's to add, not replace, one in the stable.

    When I rode by yesterday morning there were both cement and concrete trucks idling in the Vulcan Materials driveway. You may be wrong about one or another individual truck, but you are correct in the aggregate.

    The ready-mix plant is one of the last remaining legacies of the W&OD. All this stuff (ingredients of portland cement concrete) used to arrive by rail--and there was an at-grade crossing of Shirley Highway. That must have been exciting.

    Cool. Also explains why there is another Vulcan plant in FC right along the WOD
