I got a lot of commentary on last Friday’s picture, most of it about the two-way traffic on the loop rather than the eye catching fashion:
By happenstance I just ran across the memo that authorized the shift to one-way on this road. Note that Rupp says it’s a one year trial. (I understand all the annotations, by the way. Such are the fruits of my misspent youth.) But also note that pesky little “again” in the first sentence, which suggests that this is a reversion to a prior state of affairs. I guess this case is not yet closed.
This image from 1941 makes it look like the traffic sometimes went more ways than two:
Bonus: There’s a lot of construction on campus this summer, but this is my favorite project, a badly needed renovation of Anderson Bio. The photo was sent in by loyal reader Jenn Drummond ’98, who explains:
This renovation project is pretty amazing — the whole ground floor of that side of the building gutted, with interior walls removed, all the way from Dr. Caprette’s teaching lab on the GRB end to the rooms near the breezeway that used to be the EEB department office.
I’ve been assured by the highest authority that the marble panels will be reused.
