If you’re like me, you’ve probably been avoiding the part of Franklin St. near the rail yards during CSX’s expansion. In case you haven’t seen what they’re doing to Franklin St., here’s a glimpse:
Behind the fencing you can see the start of the new pitch of lower Franklin St.
The new grade goes steeply uphill.
The retaining wall fills one with such confidence.
Up, up & away.
This is the point at which Evel Knievel’s ghost will jump a bunch of cargo containers.
Here’s where there will ultimately be an underpass for tractor trailers to haul cargo containers to & from I-290 through busy Grafton St. traffic.
Any nominations for who should be immortalized in the naming of this streetscape ramp?
