That looks like the route I took once driving to Boston. I came out of the tunnel at night and had a pancakes? moment.

Apparently I should pay more attention to the interim map points when I drive.

I'm surprised you went through there enroute to Boston. Most east-west traffic avoids the city by using either I80 or I70.

There was a night time view of the same entrance on youtube, but with a hand held camera it's just not as good.  One of the networks featured it using broadcast quality, and it was spectacular.  It was for Monday Night Football, if I remember right.  The camera panned to the left of the bridge to show Heinz Field across the river.

Also, that sharp right bend on the end of the bridge was the site of numerous crashes.  It probably still is.  There used to be a curb on the inside of the bend.  My cousin hit it, flatted both right side tires, and rolled his car.  He was OK, but the car was totaled.  The curb has since been removed.

Speaking of billboards... I didn't they they were allowed to animate them.
There's one on northbound 75 around S 85th St (west side) that is definitely full-on motion / video
It also seems to be a bit smaller than all the other digital boards..     They find a loophole in the restriction?

Citizens and even private entities are not allowed to "fix up" ODOT property. You are free to pay ODOT to do it however.

When I lived in St. Louis, there was a group that used to dress like Ninjas at night and do things like plant whole gardens on medians or mow and weed public property.  I remember one morning driving down Delmar by an abandon house that was an eyesore to see all of the trash in front of the home gone, and the garden completely in bloom. They even painted the front of the house. The cops never caught them to my knowledge.  That was about 12 years ago, not sure if they are still doing it.

Perhaps we need such a covert urban task force?

It's called "Guerilla Gardening": changing public spaces with or without permission.

I would love that row of buildings up and down Boston where the parking lots are.
