On The Street

This week's prompt for the 52 Photos Project is "On the Street."  I've missed a couple of weeks, but the current theme is right up my alley.  I'm a transportation engineer and street construction is my job.

This photo is from a project I worked on back in 2007.  We reconstructed the streets in the heart of downtown Portland to add light rail tracks. Of course, sometimes rebuilding the street also includes the sidewalk.  One pedestrian did not take kindly to our sidewalk detour.  This graffiti made me laugh and I had to memorialize it in a photograph.
The project has been complete now for three years, and I still smile when I see light rail trains traveling through the heart of the city. 
Check out more great images of "On the street" at the 52 Photos Project.
