  1. So where are we? I see Bryant is four blocks south of Rosa Parks. Are we looking South? Where is this right of way?

  2. From yesterday’s post combined with today’s we can see that the work of grading and realignment was done “under traffic” so as not to interrupt service. The grade just to the south represents the finished alignment and the kink or jog moved northward as the work progressed. The surveyor’s assistant with his rod on his shoulder was likely a familiar presence on the job. The street railway engineering standards used in the construction of this line are made obvious by the lack of quality ballast.

  3. All this work was being done in preparation for the opening of the Interstate bridge. Quote- Union Avenue will be paved on completion of the viaduct from Bryant street to Columbia blvd. End quote.
