Looking for an elevated vantage point the other day, I hiked up the sidewalk of the Albany railroad overpass and discovered that the bridge is 75 years old this year. A significant milestone, it seems to me, and worth mentioning here.
There’s been some question about access to and from the planned site of a new Albany police station on Pacific Boulevard S.W. (Highway 99E). Today there’s new information on that point from Ron Irish, the city’s transportation systems analyst.
Here’s a closer look at the site where the Albany City Council would like to build a new police headquarters. It’s off Pacific Boulevard S.W., just north of the medical office complex north of 29th Avenue. (I wish the place would get an address to make describing it less cumbersome.)
