Denver "Roadgeek" Get-Together 10-23-04

On Saturday, October 23, 2004, a get-together of regular contributors to the Colorado Highways site and/or Colorado regulars on the newsgroup misc.transport.road was held. The inspiration to hold the meeting came from similar meetings held in other parts of the country. We met at Maggiano's Little Italy in Centennial, where we ordered lunch and chatted. We then headed out for a tour of the T-REX project on I-25 and I-225. Thanks to Kevin Flynn for coordinating with T-REX spokesman Karen Morales to give us the tour, and her supplying the T-REX van to haul us around. We also stopped by the T-REX project office for a quick look around there.

Walking into the belly of the beast ... er, I mean the light rail tunnel under Colorado Blvd. The tunnel takes the light rail under Colorado Blvd and Colorado Center Dr at an angle, making it a very long tunnel. Photo by Dale Sanderson.
