News Releases

Friday Bonus
In April my wife and I were in Burlington, Vermont and came upon 'the world's tallest file cabinet.' You may ask what this has to do with transportation. The 38 drawer tall structure was built by Bren Alvarez in the proposed path of the 'Southern Connector,' which would have connected I-89 to downtown Burlington. The file drawers are said to represent all the paperwork accumulated planning the project. I would not recommend visiting this during a thunderstorm.
