I-17, no traffic
I-17 with no traffic? Oh yes. From the weekend of the METRO light rail bridge over I-17 construction.
At the same time of my earlier photo, light rail not yet at the speed of light, I-17 had to be closed down to through traffic. Here are a couple of photos of a completely empty I-17. Surreal.

So I have a series of photos I’ve taken called light rail at the speed of light – extended exposures of METRO light rail trains on their travels through Phoenix.
This site is going to be excellent in a couple years’ time to add to that photo series.

Prior to its closing next week, I thought I’d make one final trip to Metrocenter to see it before the lights turn off for good June 30. I grew up close to this mall and visited it more than I probably care to admit in the 1990s. I wrote an appreciation essay on Metrocenter earlier this week, which I invite you to read first before viewing the photos.
