Progress on Thruway & State Police Facilities

The new maintenance facility is progressing rapidly per this photo courtesy of the New York State Thruway Authority. Crews were also pouring concrete for the new state police facility on the south side of the Thruway (webcam photo below).

You and I see lanes of traffic divided by a concrete strip in the photo below. They — the design-build team and others working on this project — see a future walking and bicycle path (right lane) and a breakdown lane (second from right).

Hadn’t planned to walk two miles yesterday. One more mile plus one-tenth, and I’d have crossed the new bridge on foot; add a bit more for the path’s start and end. Planning to walk another mile or two a few times per week.

These outings will put my brand new hip joint to the test and are prep for my eventual goal: to walk across the path. Aced the Lower Hudson Valley Engineering Expo weekend before last.

I’d like to know what you think.
