When does anyone pay attention to the Panhandle, though?

Maybe they'll actually get to use Optima Lake for its intended purpose for once.

Mexico has been experiencing a drought, which was bad enough there I've seen talk of Mexico City running out of water. Hopefully this will provide some relief.

Their goal is to maximize profit. No one claims otherwise.

There's going to be a full closure of Interstate 84 between Interstate 5 and Interstate 205 July 13–14 for a large graffiti removal cleanup project.

Just getting I-45 to Checotah is a win to me. We'll see how the rest plays out. US 69 is mostly upgradeable except for the portions that runs through towns. The politics will have to change, but I'm confident they will.

Small rant on the renderings:

They taught us the importance of eye-level renderings in my urban planning/3D rendering courses. And they're great, but I think they underestimate the ability of average people's ability to process birds-eye views. I know most people will never see it from those angles, but it's really important for at least some people so that we can better understand how (in this case, the IBR) infrastructure interacts with and connects with surrounding infrastructure.

I do appreciate that there are some overhead views available (circa May 2023):

Quote from: ZLoth on June 19, 2024, 09:18:35 AMGoing "cashless" also reduces theft risk.

Which it does by making theft a certainty, rather than a risk, to the tune of 3% of each transaction being stolen by the card processor.

Tisdale Parkway isn't a state-maintained highway, so it can't get a state highway number.
