  1. Your calculations are OK, it's your example that's off. Apples to apples, at 28 feet, four inches in diameter the San Antonio pipeline has significantly more capacity than the 48 inch Alaska pipeline: https://www.ksat.com/news/2018/10/18/how-a-giant-water-tunnel-saved-downtown-san-antonio-during-the-flood-of-98/
  2. Rebuilding the Southwest Freeway interchange just might have a little teensy bit to do with congestion on the West Loop, as well.
  3. Depending on the size of the contractor and its creditworthiness, officers frequently personally guarantee the bond indemnities.
  4. Actually, the bonding company or companies for whoever is responsible will be the ones coughing up the cash (and as is often the case with insurance companies, it'll likely have to be dragged out of them) because public projects have to have performance bonds. Any litigation / arbitration will probably have XYZ Co as the named defendants, though. That said, whoever's bonding company(/ies) pays up will probably have to reimburse the bonding company (or as suggested, get cleaned out), since construction bonds are generally secured, typically at least with indemnities and unless often with hard assets.
  5. Mill and overlay is peeling off most if not all of the current surface and repaving with asphalt. It can work pretty well IF the asphalt bonds well to the substrate, and IF the substrate is in decent shape. It's what they're doing currently east of Weslayan.
  6. Sorry about the repetition - the "submit" button wasn't responding as it normally does.
  7. IIRC, at least when the stadium was built the measurement was front door to front door, and Annunciation "moved" its main entrance to accommodate the stadium. Again IIRC that's when Annunciation's fencing on that side went up.

  8. Never much cared for 3 Allen either - although its color seems to fit its theme.
  9. And for people who really, really have to park out in the sun or rain or whatever Nature has to offer.
  10. feh. Bro. Jordan probably expects people to use that stick behind the steering wheel that turns on those funny flashing lights, too.
  11. Is that what those signs with numbers on them are about?
  12. Many of the Mole People are still working remotely all or part of the time, but the beginning of each of the last couple months seems to have brought more people coming back in. My guess is that we're at ~50 - 60% of the usual commuter population, based on how full the parking garage is. It's growing, though... we now often have to look before jaywalking, some places are reopening, and there are now lines at some of the more popular lunch places. Part of the issue with bars and restaurants is that the people who worked there have generally gone on to other jobs, and frequently the pay and conditions are better in the new gig.
