“a driver”

If you happened to be watching Channel 7 News today at 6:16 pm, you probably saw my latest (hah!) media appearance in a report about construction season in Western New York.  There was a crew tearing down the old gas station at 7 Corners – most recently an automotive electronics place – and I stopped by to take a couple pictures on my way to work.  If you didn’t see it, the video is here – I show up a little past half way through. 

I notice that they didn’t use the other part of the brief interview where I say “I’m not sure how three intersections are safer than one…”  I still think the whole reconfiguration of the intersection does little to address safety or efficiency,  but what the hell do I know.  I hope it works, but I am not too optimistic.  Here are some renderings and photos if you care to look; they illustrate the project quite well.  Oh, and some pictures of the wreckage:

And even a little video of the final blow:
