Thursday/ all snarled up

Traffic was so bad out to Denver airport today that my taxi driver never got to use interstate I-70 the way he normally does.  There were several construction activities and lane closures to deal with.  We ended up driving all the way along 56th Ave that runs parallel to I-70.   My appeal to airport planners : please please please do not build an airport 30 miles out of the city, and not provide mass transit to and from it – a train or a shuttle bus (with a bus lane).  A freeway filled with 10,000 cars does not work anymore.

I’m in the taxi on the way to the airport. ‘Stop the World and Let me On’ says the train in Denver downtown .. a play on the old Waylon Jennings country song ‘Stop the World and Let me Off’ ? Unfortunately it does not yet go out to the airport, or I would have taken it.

.. and here is this week’s construction report of the new Denver airport hotel. The glass window fittings are going slower than I thought, but there is progress to be seen.
