Forget I25 today. It's a zoo in every direction.

I call it Friday Syndrome. At least 10% of the drivers succumb to "weekend fever" and drive like loonies. Seen it for decades. I hated driving in the DC area on Friday's and it started with morning rush hour at 5:30 AM.

I'm not sure they are going to look to Pueblo for inspiration on improving infrastructure, lodo, urban renewal, and downtown revitalization project seemed to be the concern.

Pueblo is an alright place with decent amenities, but has a bad image. It will probably never be a vibrant metropolis with skyscrapers and busy city life, but the projects around the river walk make it an interesting place to spend a weekend afternoon

Per Richard skorman, the city will not be annexing anymore land in the near future. Apparently Banning Lewis Ranch north was the last area to be annexed. There seems to be a push for more infill and urban renewal. Sorry not trying to hijack the thread

Wishful thinking doesn't count and if we tried, Pueblo would fight it tooth and nail.
