They'd Pave Over a River If They Could. Wait, They Already Did That!

No, that's not a photoshop or an artist's rendition of some jackwagon city planners dream to pave over a river with a parking lot. That's the real thing courtesy of Google Earth.

The parking lot sits over the bustling Rock River between Court and Milwaukee Streets in Janesville. It was built in 1963.

Janesville officials are now considering its permanent removal, which seems very odd for a city that vigorously adheres to old world industrialist sprawl plans. But whatever they decide, I won't put any hope into thinking they have turned towards organic and sustainable economic planning models. They are just entering 1955 only now.
