Changing Austin

Downtown torn down, getting ready for new jail

The old dip/underpass on Oakland. Been filled in and the bridges have been torn down. This view is close to Firestone looking toward East Side lake.

Whats wrong with the old jail?

Every year that underpass would flood. Is the road really so busy that stop light would be a problem.

I think it was because of the regular flooding that they removed that dip.

They are building a justice center, encompassing more than a jail. And I guess the current jail is also too small.

I like these pictures. Is Austin a small town? If I took pictures of downtown SLC it would look a lot different.

Approximately 23,000 people. Compared to my home town (61,000,000), Austin is dinky.
