Photos: Art under 80
« on: April 20, 2011, 06:20:16 PM »
I took a walk down by S. River St and Hudson St - straddling Rt 80 - and found some interesting visuals that I always drive by, but never really look at. This post will be specifically about being under Rt 80.

1. under on Hudson St

2. by the river at that boat company on S. River St

3-5. under on S. River St

6. emerging from under 80 and expecting to be frisked

The underside of most elevated roadways is usually far more interesting than the top part seen by motorists.

One of the more technically fascinating parts of the Rt.80/Rt.95 construction projects was the elevated conveyor system that carried rock from the cut made through the Palisades near Jones Rd. to keep the roadway from going through the center of Leonia's business district. The rock was sent to the wetlands of Teaneck and other needy areas as fill on an overhead conveyor that was broke down more than it was working.

Somewhere in the So.Hackensack or Lodi area there was a spray painted strike box on the South wall of an overpass where me and my two NJBell  lineman pals spent our lunch hours playing an old childhood game with a "spaldeen" and a broomstick. Not many can say they played stick-ball on Rt.80

We did our best working on the plan to keep telephone service up and running as Rt.80 cut it's way through the neighborhoods.
