A Gray Puff, and The Old Kosciuszko Bridge Is No More

      Comments Off on A Gray Puff, and The Old Kosciuszko Bridge Is No More

Sometimes this city that’s always rebuilding carefully preserves the traces of its past.

Occasionally, it just blows them up.

Such an occasion occurred early Sunday, when the last remnants of the old Kosciuszko Bridge — a despised hunk of steel that stitched Brooklyn and Queens together through 78 years of congestion and complaint — were brought down in a carefully controlled paroxysm of explosion.

The old bridge, soaring 125 feet above the industrial Newtown Creek on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, was long past its expiration date.

      Comments Off on Traffic signals on I-87/287 on-ramps to reduce logjams: state DOT

San Francisco Chronicle, July 19, 2017

Creating high-resolution, detailed maps of millions of miles of roads is no small feat. Generally companies drive around cars equipped with lidar, a laser form of radar, to capture 3-D images of streets and environs. That’s an expensive and time-consuming task. Now a small San Francisco startup says it has a cheaper, quicker way to do it: computer-vision software that can generate highly accurate maps from crowdsourced dashcam video.
