Living in California, I’ve noticed that there’s a very large demand for roadways and highways. The per capita ownership of autos is phoenomenal. As a result, there’s a challenge to the ways that roads are arranged and designed. How do you pack high capacity roadways into tiny spaces? It astounds me because for the most part, the arrangement of highways and flyovers is virtually breathtaking. Huge structures of concrete, steel and asphalt still manage to have an aesthetic…

I’ll have to post some pics of our local raised highways to show you what I mean. For now, here’s a pic from Seattle – apparently they have the same idea as well and are doing a good job of it.
