    OFFICIAL I70 BITCH THREAD....

    {Highway / intersection / interchange} is upgraded. This is still fucked! Why did they do it this way? I could have made it better!

    I have to bow out of shit show for good. See you on I70.
    My feeling is, if they're going to work on it, fix it right. Design the highway/interchange/whatever to deal with the current and future load.
    A glaring example is the EB 6/I25 interchange by Federal. They worked on it for a year, why the hell did they not redesign the on-ramp to I25 south to have at least 2 lanes, instead of keeping the 3 lanes into 1??! That's ludicrous. There's always backed up, stopped traffic there, even after this huge project they did. Fucking morons!

    Heh. You are in for some entertainment, for sure. Hopefully you're either retired or have a WfH job?

    'Cause... yeah.

    I'm all for robo cars. The large majority of people drive for shit.

    However, I doubt I will use one until I'm old and senile. I trust myself combined with some crash avoidance software in the car more than a computer program. Programmers can't anticipate everything.

    Another question is, will cars be programmed to save the most human life when fatalities/injuries are unavoidable? Or to save its occupants?

    One of the arguments is that the economics will drive almost everyone out of the driver's seat eventually. Personal vehicles will become obsolete mainly because they are such a gigantic waste of $$.

    I took it and have had it on my phone for years, and pull it up anytime I need a laugh.

    It is not finished. And that is exactly what is left all the way up to Alameda exit. moron.

    ^ the boat pic. I remember the day it happened. I think I was about 10 minutes ahead of it.

    And true. Insurance costs and regulations will cause people to switch to automated cars.

    Not retired. WfH for now...but likely to change.

    I'm prepared to give up skiing.
    If crowded FR trails drive me off the mountain bike....well, that will be a bummer to say the least.

    The ramp from EB 6 to SB 25 is not finished? Sorry, news to me.

    Who are you kidding? You can't quit us!

    FWIW, the work done on the McCaslin interchange has been very successful. And overall the work done on 36 was great (regardless of how one might feel about the toll and the public-private partnership).

    If you can't ride during the day during the week... it might.

    Sweet.
    Gravel riding on the plains will be just as fun as Apex or Matthew B. Winter, I'm sure.

    I-70 Content: In the late 90s, I got from my apartment on 10th &Lincoln to my buddy's place in East Vail in 1:15 on Saturdays...hauling ass? Sure, but wasn't particularly hard to do.

    I'm sure. You've got the right attitude, I think.

    I-25 content warning:

    I used to work at HP up on Harmony Rd in the mid-90's. Could make it from Green Mountain to the office in Ft. Fun in less than an hour with a stop at 120th to pick up the carpool. Most of the drive from 120th - Harmony was 90-100mph.

    This is definitely the most accidents and near miss stories I've heard from friends and colleagues...

    Definitely. With a "Native" sticker just below it.
