Please attend the 30th Street Celebration and Walking Tour on Monday, Oct. 17, 2011 from 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The event begins at the 30th Street and Boulder Slough Bridge (south of Pearl Street, in Ras Kassa's parking lot).

So awesome.

I've been using the new ramp from Goose Creek up to 30th daily to get home (previously, I was using the existing one, then having to make a difficult left onto 30th heading North.)
Kinda unrelated, but if you have any info on the Arapahoe (30th to Folsom) improvements, I'm quite curious what they're up to.
