Tunnel is Pretty CoolJune 24th, 2009 by ed friedrich
I know it’s not politically correct, considering everybody is supposed to be pissed at this huge pork project and now we’re even supposed to be pisster now because we can’t turn right, but the new tunnel is pretty cool. I got to walk through it yesterday and it’s pretty nice how it winds along and the decorative walls and all.
As for being able to turn right on Washington Ave., we were saying here at work that if that was the plan all along, it wouldn’t be such a big deal.
A ferry official warned me months ago that they were worried about how the cars would depart the boats, for good reason. There’s not much distance between the dock and the tunnel, plus it’s all curved. To have cars trying to get over to the right to turn on Washington in that area would be pretty tough.
If everybody was super polite and went nice and easy, it might work. Like that’s gonna happen.
