Field trip to the new underpass

 

 

We took a field trip this week to check out the new underpass.  The top is this geometric diamond pattern that is intricately painted so that when you walk through the color changes from gold to blue.  It’s pretty cool.  Speaking of paint, then interior is a graffiti resistant paint that is almost like rubber when you touch it.  It’s very weird.  There are emergency call boxes along one wall only and they are not illuminated, which is concerning, since they are an emergency safety device.

The new police station is to the right and seems very massive from this view.

Plantings and vegetation are abundant which helps to soften the hard edges.

At street level to the right is my site for my station.  The blue building would be demolished to make way for the new train station.
