Roadscapes Wednesday: Video Bashing Of The Tar And Gravel On AL-281


Roadscapes Geek Alabama

If you have noticed, we are taking it slowly this week since it’s the week of the 4th of July.  So for this Roadscapes, I am featuring a video where I bash ALDOT once again.  Many cyclists do not like the gravel placed on AL-281 or the Talladega Scenic Drive.  Every year during the Cheaha Challenge, cyclists have a hard time navigating then gravel, and on some parts of the road, most of the gravel has come off!  You expect the tar and gravel treatment on some less traveled county road, but not on a state highway!  Here are some pictures from me.

So, I found this video where the person took the classic movie clip where Hitler yells at everyone, and he turns it into another bashing from this state’s DOT.  The video is a compliant about the tar and gravel treatment on AL-281.  For a state that has no social media presence or YouTube channel, by they way, every state’s DOT around Alabama has social media accounts and a YouTube channel, this video should serve a purpose for some major changes inside ALDOT, I have proposed changes, but nothing has happened.  So from the YouTube channel stan0614, enjoy the video!

Roadscapes Wednesday: New Road Drawings Featuring One Lane Bridge / Road Work


Roadscapes Geek Alabama

This week on Roadscapes Wednesday, I am featuring two more cool road drawings from me!  The 51st Geek Alabama road drawing features a highway with a one lane bridge going over a creek with a bike trail and a traffic light intersection.  The 52nd road drawing features an Interstate highway at the beginning of a work zone, where one side of the road crosses over the median and forms a two-lane road while the other side is being reconstructed.  Both drawings features a lot of reflectors and delineators, can’t have enough of them!  So enjoy the road drawings, and if you want to learn more about how I draw my roads, go to: http://geekalabama.com/road-drawings/

Roadscapes Wednesday: 49th and 50th Geek Alabama Road Drawings


Roadscapes Geek Alabama

I have been drawing roads all of my life, but I have reached my 50th road drawing since I started the Geek Alabama blog!  So in this Roadscapes post, I am featuring my 49th and 50th road drawing.  The first road drawing features a simple 2-lane freeway with a left hand exit for a rest area.  The unique feature is the truck way-in-motion in the right lane.  The second road drawing features a 2-lane highway at a traffic light intersection.  The unique thing here is the one-way bridge for a park road.
