Construction Zone- Part Six

We returned to the construction zone, to see how everything was coming along.

Our latest suspicions were confirmed; they are building a whole new railroad bridge! It will be exciting to see how everything ends up looking with this swanky new bridge in place.


I started documenting this construction site when the city temporarily closed off our favorite biking trail in order to put a new road in, that will eventually connect with the interstate by way of a diverging diamond. I miss our biking trail so much, so I have been keeping close watch on the construction, hoping that our trail will be back open soon.
(It's been two years now!!)

I also want to remember how things used to look. My city has changed so much in the past few years that some parts are almost unrecognizable. I want to document everything I can.

This whole area used to be covered in trees, it is so different now.

This is where the much anticipated diamond will be. 



On our visit, we spotted something strange on the tracks...

A cat!

He was so cute, but so scared of us!  I couldn't get close to him.




In the background is the college I went to. I remember biking on this trail before I even got accepted there, and wondering what my life would be like once I started. Now, years later, I have attended, graduated and it's a thing of the past. It all feels like a dream. It's funny how life works.

That's why I like to take pictures of how things once were. Because they'll change before you know it!
