Why California's Musical Road Sounds Terrible
 
03:29
In Lancaster, California, there's a musical road. When you drive over it, it plays the William Tell Overture. Unfortunately, it's out of tune. Here's why. Thanks to David Simmons-Duffin, who figured this out about nine years ago: http://davidsd.org/2008/12/honda-needs-a-tune-up/ -- he seems to be the first to have figured out not just that it's wrong, but exactly what happened!

Top 10 Future U.S. MEGAPROJECTS

Ten infrastructure mega-projects America needs President Donald Trump and congress to fund and build in the near future. Try dollar shave club: http://www.dollarshaveclub.com/TDC FB for daily news: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Based on this article: http://nyti.ms/2fKSxBY Music: “Last (Moonbase Commander Remix)” by Polographia https://soundcloud.com/sweat-it-out-music/polographia-last-moonbase-commander-remix Video edited by Robin West Researched and co-written by Juliet Saunders Written, narrated, and produced by Bryce Plank Script: These are ten megaprojects the U.S. desperately needs to complete in the near future. They each represent many other projects awaiting approval and funding in cities and towns across America. Texas Bullet Train Cost: $10 billion A bullet train in Texas would help ease traffic in Houston and Dallas that will only get worse as the Lonestar state continues to grow. A road trip from one city to the other will take up to 6.5 hours in the next twenty years. Modeled after Japan’s Shinkansen train, the Texas Central High-Speed Rail will cut that journey to just over three hours thanks to max speeds of 250 miles per hour. South Carolina Dams Cost: $700 million Heavy rains in 2015 breached more than 50 dams in South Carolina, causing flooding throughout the state. It’s an emergency that will keep happening if the more than 600 dams rated as high-hazard aren’t modernized. Dams are aging nationwide and need more than $20 billion in repairs and upgrades. Maryland Purple Line Cost: $5.6 billion The Washington DC area has some of the worst traffic in the country. Extending the existing metro system to the suburbs by adding another metro line with 21 new stations will make everyone’s commute shorter, and will take an estimated 17,000 cars off the road. Denver I-70 East Cost: $1.7 billion Denver has an ambitious plan to take back land from the interstate by plunging part of the I-70 East underground to create a large park with sports fields and performance spaces. The project will also modernize and widen the 60-plus-year-old road to ensure its structural integrity and ease congestion within the sprawling Denver area. Miami Sea Wall Cost: $20 billion Miami is already dealing with the effects of climate change with the installation of 80 pumping stations. But when sea levels rise just 5 more feet, 96% of the city will be underwater, making it America’s most vulnerable urban area to a changing climate. To survive, it will need to significantly expand its levee system and build a multi-billion dollar seawall. Northeast Corridor Maglev Cost: $100 billion The highly populated northeast corridor of the U.S. desperately needs to expand its high-speed rail network to keep pace with the best cities in the world. Right now, the fastest train is the Acela, whose top speed is just 125 miles per hour. A maglev train connecting New York to DC could hit 300 mph and cut the commute from four hours to one. Project Clean Lake Cost: $3 billion Old sewer lines aren’t properly functioning, resulting in raw sewage streaming into Lake Erie from Cleveland during storms. Project clean lake is a 25-year renewal plan that uses a variety of green methods, including the construction of seven tunnels, to solve the problem. The Gordie Howe International Bridge Cost: $2.1 billion To allow for more people and goods to pass through the Detroit-Windsor, Canada section of the border, the Gordie Howe International Bridge will provide uninterrupted traffic flow. When complete, the project will increase daily vehicle crossings by 30%. California High-Speed Rail Cost: $65 billion Phase 1 of California’s high-speed rail project should open by 2030. It aims to connect Los Angeles to San Francisco in just three hours, compared to the nearly six hours it now takes to drive the route. It will be the first high-speed rail project on the U.S. west coast and will eventually extend to San Diego and Sacramento, the state’s capitol. Hudson River Rail Tunnel Cost: $100 billion 200,000 daily passenger trips are made through the only rail tunnel connecting Manhattan and New Jersey. 100 years old and severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy, it badly needs an upgrade. The proposed Hudson River Rail Tunnel megaproject would modernize the existing tunnel and add a second one in order to ease congestion and wait time for commuters.

Taking Politics Out of Transportation: Economist Bruce Benson on Private Roads
 
06:33
Americans are accustomed to government provided roads, but "a private road system is going to get you from here to there more efficiently, and with less congestion," says Bruce Benson, a professor of economics at Florida State University. Reason.tv sat down with Benson during the Libertopia festival in Hollywood, California to discuss the limitless possibilities of private road construction. Drawing on his research on private alternatives to pubic provision of services such as road construction and law enforcement, Benson points to America's long history of roads that were privately built by communities that wanted to connect into a system of trade. Benson predicts a return of privately built roads as our congested public infrastructure continues to degrade. Approximately 6.5 minutes. Interviewed by Zach Weissmueller. Camera and Editing by Hawk Jensen; animation by Austin Bragg.

1950s INTERSTATE HIGHWAY PROMO FILM BY AMERICAN ROAD BUILDINGS ASSOCIATION 78014 MD
 
31:28
Produced in 1957 by the American Road Builders Association, “We’ll Take the High Road” is presented as a public service announcement, the films touts the ever-increasing number of cars on the nation’s roads and how builders are moving to meet an increasing need for more roads and highways. Because the existing roads were not originally engineered for safety or the number of cars using them, President Dwight D. Eisenhower (shown at mark 02:05) signed the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act in June 1956, when signed the bill into law. It authorized $25 billion for the construction of 41,000 miles of an Interstate Highway System and was the largest public works project in American history at the time. As a result, the Interstate Highway System was soon developed and Federal Highway Administrator Bertrum D. Tallamy explains, starting at mark 02:53, how the proposed system will work. (Began in 1956, the system had a total length of 47,856 miles as of 2013). Presented as part of a “town meeting” skit beginning at mark 05:15, the film launches into a detailed explanation of what would officially be known as the “Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways.” He notes that “it will be possible to drive from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and from Canada to Mexico on safe, multi-lane, divided highways without a single stoplight or stop sign” and is designed “for the traffic of the future.” Although residents in some smaller town feared that highways would divert traffic from their roads and cause them to become ghost towns, the narrator says those are “dark suspicions.” At mark 10:30, the film delves into the large amount of planning and engineering involved in mapping out the highway system, with “electronic brains” doing much of the work. Revisiting the concern that a highway system would take business away from “mom and pop establishments,” the film claims near mark 16:08 that a highway system would result in an increase in business and property value. “Travelers can get into town, move around, find a place to park, and buy what they want,” we are told. The system would also improve smaller, local, “farm-to-market” roads, and provide for “expert landscaping” along highways to keep the journey one that is aesthetically pleasing. Following further discussion of design plans and construction details, Although some businesses and residences would have to be acquired to construct the highway system, the audience is told at mark 28:50 that “anyone with any sense at all knows that this system of roads will be a good thing for his country and for all of us. It’s something we really need. We’ve got to have it if we’re going to move ahead in this country the way we always have.” We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment!

10 Roads You Would Never Want to Drive On

Top 10 Most Dangerous Roads and Highways from around the world you should never take your car on. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: david.f@valnetinc.com Other Videos You Might Like Strange Things That Only Happen In America 10 Largest Holes Swallowing Earth Description: Since the invention of the modern automobile, we have been in love with our cars, trucks and motorcycles. It’s hard to think how we could function on a daily basis without a personal car around to take us to the grocery store, movie theatre or over to a friend’s house. This mode of transportation is such an important part of most peoples’ lives that we have no idea how we’d cope if cars suddenly disappeared tomorrow. Sure, most cars pollute and after a decade or so we get rid of the old and bring in a new car – filling up wrecking yards and burnings tons of gasoline in the process. The automobile is so important that rather than develop a whole new mode of transportation we instead focus our energy on creating more efficient gasoline burning engines and new models of electric cars. Nonetheless, the car is an integral part of our lives and our culture. Of course, many people have often heard the saying (but never really payed any attention to it) that driving is one of the most dangerous things we do in our daily lives. Indeed, getting behind the wheel of your ride and heading off to work or some other destination can be very dangerous. Statistically, the number crunchers say that you are far more likely to die driving your car than flying in a plane. The numbers seem to back this up by showing that over 90 people are killed every day in motor vehicle accidents in the US alone. It all makes sense once you think about it. If you think about all the people out on the road and add in distracted and drunk drivers, mechanical failures and bad weather then it’s easy to see why driving can be so dangerous. But what about the actual sections of roads and highways that seemingly have a high number of accidents and fatalities all year round. That is, it can be bad enough driving on ‘regular’ roads and highways around the world but there are roads which, for whatever reason, just seem more dangerous than the rest. You are probably picturing the classic mountain side road, carved into the rock with minimal safety barriers and exposed to landslides and all the inclement weather you can think of. Yes, those roads are very dangerous, but they aren’t the only ones to avoid driving on. As part two of our ‘dangerous roads’ series, we look at 10 roads you probably wouldn’t want to drive on. These motorways are found all across the world, in all sorts of environments and at all sorts of altitudes. There are the expected mountain roads – narrow and crumbling where one small mistake means you are going for a very long fall. There are also the remote and isolated highways running through deserts and the vastness of Siberia. There are even the sea level roads which provide their own nasty little surprise that can ruin your day (or life). We guarantee that after seeing this your daily commute will appear to be a walk in the park.

Road diets: designing a safer street

Reconfigure the lanes and the traffic will calm. Subscribe to our channel!​ http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines. Check out​ http://www.vox.com​. Watch our full video catalog:​ http://goo.gl/IZONyE Follow Vox on Facebook:​ http://goo.gl/U2g06o Or Twitter:​ ​http://goo.gl/XFrZ5H Over the course of the 20th century, the car became America’s dominant mode of transportation. As vehicle miles travelled soared well past the rate of population growth, demands on the roadway surged. Congestion became a major issue. So transportation planners made the roads wider and added traffic lanes. Today, we now know that bigger roads and extra traffic lanes do nothing to solve congestion. In fact, it tends to induce even more traffic. So we didn’t fix the congestion issues, and on top of that, we built wide roads that are relatively unsafe. Transportation planners in the 21st century recognized that many of the roads that were overbuilt could be redesigned to calm speeding and add space for newer multimodal transportation options. And thus, the road diet was born. The video above explains why road diets are implemented, and how planners survey the feasibility of a lane reconfiguration. You can learn more about road diets with the following resources: https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/research/safety/10053/10053.pdf https://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/road_diets/guidance/info_guide/rdig.pdf https://nacto.org/docs/usdg/conversion_of_four_lane_undivided_urban_roadways.pdf

Meet the People Getting Screwed Over By Jerry Brown’s High Speed Rail
 
07:03
Hundreds in Central Valley may lose property to make way for flawed train. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/OCxWAq "It's like a field of dreams—if you build it they will come," says Mary Jane Fagundes, a Hanford, California resident in danger of losing her home to California's high speed rail. "But it's just a dream that's never going to become a reality." Fagundes is one of many Central Valley property owners whose land will be affected by the construction of the high speed rail. Fagundes and her husband, Jerry, first learned that the rail was coming down their street from a cousin. Though the train will run 80 feet from their front door and cause severe vibration and noise damage, the California High Speed Rail Authority will not deal with the Fagundes family because the tracks do not technically touch their property line. The Fagundes family will have to initiate an inverse condemnation suit against the state to recoup the losses from the damage that will be caused to their property due to the construction of the high speed rail. Since the rail was first approved by California voters in 2008, the project has been met with scrutiny from those on both the left and right for being a waste of time and money. Construction for the 800 mile train which will eventually connect San Francisco to San Diego is already way over budget—the proposed $68 billion dollar plan is now expected to cost over $100 billion—and is almost a decade behind schedule. Despite these significant hurdles, Jerry Brown and high speed rail are moving forward and are ramping up efforts to secure the land needed for the train through the use of eminent domain. The Fresno Bee reports that over 200 properties in the Central Valley alone have been targeted for condemnation by the state Public Works board to make way for the train and the first round of eminent domain cases are expected in courts this fall. Property owners in the first and second segments of track that span from Madera, California to Bakersfield, California are beginning to receive appraisals for their land and their have been numerous complaints about the manner in which the appraisals are being done. Alisa Gomez, a high school teacher in Corcoran, California, is one of the property owners that has experienced problems with the appraisal process. "We got a letter stating that they wanted to appraise our property and they told us to call them when we were ready to setup an appointment. About a week later there were appraisers walking up and down the road and caught my husband at lunch time wanted to do the appraisal right then and there." Gomez and her husband rushed home from work to do a last minute appraisal. Gomez then states rail representatives started contacting her ex-husband to get in touch with her about the property. "I don't understand why they were contacting him," says Gomez. "It's a little bit of an invasion of privacy." After multiple attempts to remedy the situation with the rail authority, Gomez then says she came home one day to find a FedEx package thrown over her fence which contained her appraisal offer. "So I open the appraisals up and there's multiple mistakes. My name is misspelled—spelled right here—misspelled in another area. When I look through it it's kind of sad. They take properties that were foreclosed, properties that were in town instead of in the country, looked at properties that were less bedrooms, less square footage, run down and it was just it was a smack in the face offer what they had appraised us at." "I think the rail representatives in certain instances are definitely sort of applying pressure tactics to the land owners," says Ray Carlson, a property lawyer who is representing several clients in the Hanford area. "Some of these appraisals they didn't even know were being made, they just ended up on their doorstep one day." Gomez and Fagundes have teamed up with the Citizens for California High Speed Rail Accountability, a citizen watchdog group who's mission is to bring accountability to the high speed rail construction process. "I think they probably started here because this is somewhere that is very simple and maybe they thought we wouldn't fight," says Gomez. "But that's definitely not the case. There's some people that really care about their property and the people around them. They do the research and they're going to make sure that they [California High Speed Rail Authority] is held accountable." Approximately 7 minutes. Produced by Alexis Garcia.

BIZARRE ENDING: Armed Road Rage Suspect Leads Police on Chase Through Los Angeles County (FNN)
 
01:01:29
Brought to you by Desert Diamond: http://ddcaz.com LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11 / CNS) - A motorist allegedly involved in a road-rage incident with San Gabriel police led authorities on an erratic pursuit Wednesday on freeways and surface streets that reached 100 mph at times, and the suspect at one point appeared to intentionally side-swipe a California Highway Patrol SUV involved in the chase. San Gabriel police notified the CHP about 11:30 a.m. that an officer in one if the agency's marked patrol cars had been involved in an road-rage incident with a suspect in an SUV and was chasing the vehicle. After winding through the East Hollywood area, with the suspect occasionally using the SUV to push through stalled traffic and side-swiping vehicles in his path, the chase went onto the southbound Hollywood (101) Freeway. About noon, the SUV -- a white Nissan Rogue with Colorado plates -- and the police vehicles had transitioned onto the southbound Harbor (110) Freeway through south Los Angeles. The suspect eventually exited the freeway in the Wilmington area, winding through sometimes congested city streets and even passing through a construction zone. He then got back on the northbound 110 Freeway in the Carson area then moved east on the Artesia (91) Freeway. At one point he appeared to intentionally swerve across multiple freeway lanes and side-swiped a CHP vehicle in the far left lane before speeding ahead. At about 12:40 p.m., the speeding suspect tried to exit the 110 Freeway at Norwalk Boulevard in the Cerritos area, but he clipped a slightly raised median and lost control of the SUV, which went into a spin and wound up rolling backward into some brush alongside the offramp. After several minutes, the suspect got out a rear door of the SUV, crouching beside the vehicle in an attempt to see where police were positioned. He got back in the vehicle, but a few moments later crawled out a window and tried to flee on foot. Police deployed a dog, which chased the suspect down and subdued him until officers caught up and took the man into custody. The suspect could be seen continuing to yell and acting belligerently as police tried to put him into a patrol unit.

THE ROAD AHEAD INTERSTATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM CATERPILLAR TRACTOR CO. 44104
 
23:11
Presented by Caterpillar Tractor Co. and narrated by Walter Cronkite, THE ROAD AHEAD traces the birth of the interstate highway system beginning in June 29, 1956 with the passage of the Federal Aid Highway Act and the launching of the Interstate Defense Highway Program. This was the largest construction project in the history of the world, to build highways spanning the North American continent. At 3:00, you will see the first highway built at St. Charles, Missouri. As Cronkite states at 3:45, the investment was estimated at $50 billion dollars through 1975. The era of the automobile had truly arrived once the construction was complete. At 4:50, Cronkite shows a map showing the interstate highway system and discusses the assignment of numbers to the various highways constituting 40,000 miles of highway. The building of these highways would constitute a more efficient, safer way of travel that would unite the nation in a way never seen before. At 6:23, the Marine Studios in Florida is seen, and at 7:00 the New Jersey Turnpike. At 13:50, slow traffic is seen on Main Street and the fact that freeways will make main street less congested and safer is emphasized. At 18:30, the argument is made that freeways will provide freedom of movement and allow people to live in the suburbs. At 20:51, early computers are shown used to make calculations about the highway system. The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956, popularly known as the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act (Public Law 84-627), was enacted on June 29, 1956, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the bill into law. With an original authorization of US$25 billion for the construction of 41,000 miles (66,000 km) of the Interstate Highway System supposedly over a 10-year period, it was the largest public works project in American history through that time. The addition of the term "Defense" in the Act's title was for two reasons: First, some of the original cost was diverted from defense funds. Secondly, most US Air Force bases have a direct link to the system. The purpose was to provide access in order to defend them during an attack. All of these links were in the original plans, although some, such as Wright Patterson were not connected up in the 1950s, but only somewhat later. The money for the Interstate Highway and Defense Highways was handled in a Highway Trust Fund that paid for 90 percent of highway construction costs with the states required to pay the remaining 10 percent. It was expected that the money would be generated through new taxes on fuel, automobiles, trucks, and tires. As a matter of practice, the federal portion of the cost of the Interstate Highway System has been paid for by taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel.

Speaker Atkins Has Sensible Plan to Fix California’s Congested and Deteriorating Roads
 
04:46
(Sacramento) – Depending on where you drive in California, our state’s crumbling and congested roadways steal as much as 90 hours a year of your time, as you wait in traffic. That’s a quality of life issue that Californians should not have to endure. California State Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) and the Assembly Democrats have come up with a timely and reasonable plan to fix the Golden State’s freeways, bridges and other transportation infrastructure. “California cannot have a strong middle class or a thriving economy if our roadways are congested and people and goods cannot move efficiently throughout the state,” said Speaker Atkins. “The Assembly is stepping up and proposing $10 billion for transportation infrastructure… $2 billion per year over the next 5 years… starting in 2015-16.” Watch this Assembly Access Video to learn more about Speaker Atkins’s transportation infrastructure plan and why California needs to get the work started right away. http://www.asmdc.org/Speaker

5 Steps To Become A Licensed Contractor In California
 
04:40
If you're looking to become a licensed contractor in California but don't know how, then you should watch this video. In this video I talk about the 5 steps you need to take in order to become a licensed contractor in California. Step 1: Understand What a Contractor is. First you need to know what a contractor is. A contractor is a person who has the skills necessary to manage the daily activities of a construction business, including field supervision. Step 2. Identify whether or not you need a license. Any business which does the above, including home improvement work, must be licensed by the Registrar of Contractors in order to undertake a project if the total cost of labor and materials is $500.00 or more. Licenses are required BEFORE submitting bids. Step 3. Identify what kind of license you need. There are 3 basic license types in the state of California. "A" General Engineering Contractor: one who works on fixed works, such as public works, irrigation, streets and roads, parks, excavations, etc. "B" General Building Contractor: one who works on structures built for the shelter of persons or animals requiring more than two unrelated trades or crafts. A general building contractor who performs only one trade on a job (with the exception of carpentry or framing) must have the specialty classification for that trade. "C" Specialty Contractor: Class-C, is one whose construction work requires special skills and whose principal contracting business involves the use of specialized building trades or crafts, for example: electricians, plumbers, painters, etc. Step 4: Find out if you qualify and if not, WHO will be qualifying for the license. In order to qualify you need to be at least 18 years or older and have at least 4 years experience in your trade. However, sometimes YOU may not qualify, therefore, you can find someone who does and partner with them. Step 5: Take The Exam The last step to becoming a licensed contractor is to take the state exam. You must pay a fee to take the exam and the exam consists of two parts. The Law portion and the trade portion. You must pass both in order to get your license. ----- STAY CONNECTED: Website: https://www.socalcontractingservices.org/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SoCal-Contracting-Services-Inc-622217061317689/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/socalcontracting/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/socalcontract ----- FOLLOW THE VLOG CHANNEL: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT9o5BJ7QSy29xG5UXbcdTw FOLLOW LUIS AREVALO JR: Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/luisarevalojr/ Follow on Twitter: https://twitter.com/luisarevalojr My Blog: http://thetravelingceo.org LIKE me on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/Luis-Arevalo-jr-637965176395698/

The Construction Permit Process
 
11:29
http://real-101.com Watch More Episodes http://whitewillowdesign.ca White Willow Design What is a building permit? A building (or construction) permit is intended to ensure that all construction work, including home and commercial renovations are carried to the requirements of the relevant building code. What are the stages of gaining a building permit? It’s easiest to look at the stages as two distinct areas; • The planning department • The building department Firstly, the planning department of the municipality will be required to fully approve the plans. This will include satisfying the following departments and criteria; • Engineering department – upgrading plans, geotechnical surveys and topographical surveys. This may sometimes also include the need to conduct bore hole drilling to sample ground conditions • Zoning clearances stamp – meeting the existing zoning restrictions of the property. This will be to ensure that any construction work does not infringe upon areas outside of the permitted property zone. Proximity to things such as roads will also be considered • Minor variance approval - special permission may be needed if the construction work falls outside of the existing zones • Site plan approval process – the look of the house must suit its surroundings The next stage to look at is the building department. This is where other aspects of the design and construction plan will be considered. These will include items such as: • HVAC systems • Heat loss calculations • Septic permits, sewerage considerations water supply considerations • Structural design • City services • Plumbing (more so for commercial properties) What happens if I live near a body of water or in the Niagara Escarpment area? If you are lucky enough to fall into this category, then there is no need to be alarmed! There will just be a slightly different route to take. This route will include the involvement of conservation authorities or the Niagara Escarpment commission. The exact conservation authority will depend on which body of water you are located near. These authorities will have their own design criteria, which will often supersede the municipal authorities own approvals. Sometimes dealing in this way will actually by-pass some of the municipalities processes. How long until I can start building? This really depends on how well your plans are put together and which authorities you are dealing with. You would normally expect the process to take anywhere from around 3 weeks or more. In very complex construction projects or in certain conservation areas this time can sometimes stretch to upwards of 18 months; although these instance are rare. The assistance of a design consultancy that offers a permit approval service will greatly increase the chances of this process being completed successfully. I’ve started the build, what happens next? Once the building permit is in place and work is underway, you can expect to have visits from building inspectors. This will simply be to ensure that work is actually being carried out in accordance with the submitted plans and is complying with the correct construction codes. So, you’ve still got your sights set on building that new home or starting some home renovation work? Of course you have, just don’t forget to keep the neighbours happy!

Road rage rampage: police shoots down bulldozer driver who endangered public security
 
02:42
A bulldozer driver has put his heavy vehicle into malicious use, going on a rampage on the streets of Shuozhou City, north China’s Shanxi Province. The incident happened on September 2015, but footage of the angry driver ramming into moving cars and pedestrians recently emerged online, leaving viewers in a state of shock.   Camera surveillance footage show the moment the driver got out of control and started to randomly chase much smaller vehicles, including a police car. In one clip, the driver is seen attacking a motorbike, lifting the two-wheeler with the blade only to smash it on the ground. The operator then proceeded to run the motorcyclist over, killing him on the spot.   Police rushed to the scene, and blocked the road in an attempt to cut off the mad driver. Eventually, an officer successfully fired at the man, shooting him down.

Interesting Underground Gold Mine Stuffed With Quartz
 
27:30
This gold mine is one of those abandoned mines that didn’t look like much at first, but ended up being really interesting… Aside from the complexity of the underground workings we explored, we just kept finding stuff. Well, more accurately, I should say that my exploring buddy kept finding stuff. While I was inside the first adit looking around, Mr. McBride, discovered the lower adit and the buildings above the mine workings. Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about the history of this mine. As with many things, California is behind other states in digitizing the records in their archives. By contrast, Nevada is fantastic in this respect. The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology and the University of Nevada in Reno have done a really impressive job of digitizing and organizing their records online. So, for example, if you have the name of a mine, you can look through their database and find extensive records and maps for the mine you’re curious about. Obviously, not every historic mine is included in their database, but most are. Even without knowing the history though, it is apparent that this mine is an older mine that was worked off and on for quite a while. It also doesn’t seem to be a big stretch to assume that a respectable amount of gold was extracted. I’m basing that on the size of the workings and how the miners burrowed off in all directions from that quartz core where the pit was. They even went down and ran another adit in... Actually, as I was typing that, I realized that it may have been the other way around. If you’ll recall, the track in the lower adit was the “budget rail” where the miners nailed the metal strips onto boards to run the ore carts over. Since the track in the first adit I entered was solid metal rail, it would suggest the possibility that the miners may have done well enough in the lower adit to afford to splash out on expensive rail when driving a second adit above. In other words, the lower adit may have been the first adit. The mine buildings just above the underground workings were interesting to us given their age. The main building looked just large enough to accommodate a crew of approximately the size of the number of names on the board where the miners would badge in and badge out. It’s possible a mining crew could have worked this operation in the winter, but given its remote location, fairly poor dirt roads and heavy snowfall in the winter, it seems more likely this was a summer mining operation. Was that a grave at the end? What do you guys think that was? ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Prop 6 would eliminate funding for more than 6,500 bridge and road safety, transportation and public transit improvement projects currently underway throughout California. Stop the attack on bridge and road safety. The California Professional Firefighters, California Association of highway Patrolmen, American Society of Civil Engineers, business, local government, labor, environmentalists and first responders urge NO on Prop 6 because it eliminates more than $5 billion annually in existing transportation funds and stops funding for more than 6,500 bridge and road safety, transportation and public transit improvement projects currently underway throughout California. Visit our website: https://noprop6.com/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/NoProp6 Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NoProp6/ GET THE FACTS Prop 6 makes our bridges and roads less safe and jeopardizes public safety: California has more than 1,600 bridges and overpasses that are structurally deficient and unsafe and 89% of counties have roads that are in ‘poor’ or ‘at-risk’ condition. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were more than 3,600 fatalities on California roads in 2016. Poor road conditions are a major factor in vehicle collisions and accidents. Prop 6 will stop thousands of projects currently underway throughout California to upgrade bridges and overpasses to meet earthquake safety standards and to improve the safety of our roads. Prop 6 eliminates funding for more than 6,500 transportation improvement projects currently underway: According to the California State Transportation Agency, there are more than 6,500 local transportation improvement projects underway in every California community. If Prop 6 passes, construction will come to a grinding halt in every city and county in the state, wasting money and making road conditions even worse. Prop 6 eliminates thousands of jobs and hurts our economy: The California Chamber of Commerce and business organizations throughout the state oppose Prop 6 because it would eliminate 68,000 jobs and $183 billion dollars in economic investments as thousands of road construction projects are halted.

100 Years on the Lincoln Highway
 
56:59
Before the Interstate Highway System, before famed Route 66, before highways were even numbered, there was one road that started it all, one road that changed America forever: The Lincoln Highway. “100 Years on the Lincoln Highway” is the story of the first coast to coast automobile road in the United States and its impact on Wyoming.

Top 10 Craziest Intersections
 
04:18
This video features world's most unusual interchanges from any metrics—such as design, driving experience, project costs, historic values and many more.. Youtube Channel: http://goo.gl/H4x2vr Our Tweets: https://twitter.com/YT_Engineering8 Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Engineering8Channel Tumblr: http://engineering8.tumblr.com/ Google+ page: https://goo.gl/upGvEV 10. Gravely Hill Interchange Also called 'Spaghetti Juction', its is one of earliest stack interchange in the world as it opened in 1972. It is located in Birmingham, England. 9. Gate Tower Building Located in Osaka, Japan; it is the only elevated interchange that goes into buildings. It happens due to landlord refused to gave up land, hence the an agreement archived with such design. 8. Judge Harry Pregerson Interchange Found in Los Angeles, USA; it is one of a few five-level stack interchanges existed in America. What makes this one so special since it also integrated with metro line and bus transit station right in the middle. 7. Nanpu Bridge Interchange Located right in the middle of Shanghai, it's unique circular design is a smart way to integrate 3 highways while elevating traffic into a very high bridge at the same time. 6. Porta Maggiore Road that go around this historic monument give drivers hurrendous experience with trams and train railways cross exist every 20 feet. 5. Springfield Interchange Being most busiest interchange in USA, it also host two interchange in one place—one for regular highways, another for HOV. It costs 676 million USD which makes it the most expensive intersection in USA (maybe even world). 4. Oyamazaki Interchange Can be found in Osaka, Japan. This tentacles junction makes driver go rounds few times before exit the interchange. Another crazy fact is two unnecessary branch which leads to same destination. 3. Arc de Triomphe Roundabout Being Paris famous landmarks, it also serve 12 roads by its wide roundabout. The traffic atmosphere would trigger question if you are still in Europe. 2. Yan'an Interchange This is the only 6 level stack interchange and the highest stack number on the planet. It joints two elevated motorways while pedestrian overpass and local crossroads uninterrupted. 1. Magic Roundabout Located in Swindon, England; it contains five small roundabouts on each entrance of roads. Its design may look insane but the it works in dispersing traffic into bigger area and accident rate statistic is fine too.

Golden Gate Bridge Road Zipper in action at the tail end of its morning run
 
03:55
Some closeups of the Barrier Transfer Machine (BTM) repositioning the new Moveable Median Barrier (MMB) on the Golden Gate Bridge at the tail end of its Thursday morning run on January 15, 2015. It started at the northern (Marin) end and this video is of it reaching the end of its run at the southern (San Francisco) end, near the toll plaza. The new Moveable Median Barrier (MMB) system is about 13,340 feet of 12-inch wide and 32-inch high steel clad units filled with high density concrete pinned together to form a semi-rigid median barrier. There are two barrier transfer machines, aka “zipper” trucks. This replaces, and is a vast improvement over, the old yellow plastic pylon divider system, which you can see still in partial use here to block off some lanes at the toll plaza. You can see the installation of the barrier itself here: http://youtu.be/s-FohgijTuw

Building the lower road in Seattle’s new double-deck tunnel
 
01:05
Seattle’s new SR 99 tunnel has a stacked roadway inside. Crews recently finished pouring the top (southbound) roadway. Now the lower road (northbound) is under construction. Unlike the top deck, the lower deck is built with concrete panels constructed off-site – each one weighing 22 tons. This time lapse shows how the road quickly comes together.
