There is an interstate loop in the city near my home as in many such citys. I noticed that there are a number of new concrete anchors such as those
that hold the large over the road signs at various places along the loop. Just because I am the curious type, I started asking around as to what they
are for. Nobody I have asked seems to know, which, honestly doesn't surprise me or raise any red flags. However, since there is so much happening
with the TSA and other big brother agencies, I thought I'd just look it up online and see what info the dot had. Nothing. So I decided to make a few
calls to the local police to find out. " Let me ask" was the response before a very long hold. Finally, the lady came back on line and asked who I
was and why I wanted to know. I told her I was a citizen and was just curious. She then told me she didn't know and I should call the DOT. Now it's
really bugging me, so I call the DOT and get more runaround and finally they said that they needed my full name and number before they would tell me.
I declined, thanked them and hung up. Next I decided to go straight to the horses mouth, the guys doing the work. They were nice enough, but, no one
knew what they were for. They said they weren't told anything more than what the plans told them.
I just find it odd that there are no worksite info boxes or inspection sheet info or any other indication of what they are doing. It very well could
be something simple, it's just the lack of info that makes it curious. They also
widened a six mile stretch of the interstate from two to three and four lanes between the very small town where I live into the city. Also included in
that was filling in and paving the median and adding a concrete barrier. That makes sense to me as for one purpose only, for slowing traffic through
inspection stations. That thought was strengthened when I found out about the request for armored roadside booths by the homeland security.
Anyone else see anything similar?
