The Changing Face of Transportation



Happy Halloween!


Do you remember the good ol' days when trick-or-treating began when it got dark?  When you said "trick or treat", you might actually get the "trick" (Editors Note: That happened to me -- some guy and a garden hose.  At least he gave candy afterwards).  Nowadays, it seems that each community sets the times.  And it's all candy and no tricks.


Oh well, have a safe Halloween and don't eat your kidsHalloweenDogs candy (well, at least wait until they go to bed).

How High Will The Toll Be?
By: Billy Garrison (GRW)



The two new bridges being built across the Ohio River will be paid for by tolls. Kentucky and Indiana have set July 2013 for when they will announce the price of the tolls and how they will be collected. To read more, click here.

Transportation Superlatives I:
Shortest Street in the World
This is the first of a series of 'transportation superlatives' which will highlight roads of the highest order, extreme or degree.  Thanks to Diane Zimmerman for passing these along!
Ebenezer Place, Scotland



Ebenezer Place, in Wick, Caithness, Scotland, is credited by the Guinness Book of Records as being the world's shortest street at 2.06 m (6 ft 9 in). In 2006 it surpassed the previous record (5.2 m, 17 ft) set by Elgin Street, Bacup, Lancashire . The street has only one address: the front door of No. 1 Bistro, which is part of Mackays Hotel.



The street originated in 1883, when Ebenezer Place was constructed; the owner of the building, a hotel at the time, was instructed to paint a name on the shortest side of the hotel. It was officially declared a street in 1887.
