Roads in the center

Highway 35 runs right through the middle of the city. That is good and bad. Traffic used to be a disaster to get through the city. They now have taken much of it underground level, and nearly finished with the 3-4 year work.

View of the old Part of City

The highway cuts right through much of the old and new parts of the city. NOw they have roadside fast food franchises and car dealerships.

Culture of the city

Museums on the riverfront and the river walk is nice to take. Being this is one of a few cities with a sizable population; 400,000, it has some art and other big city attractions. The river in the center is a nice place to stroll. Airplane manufacturing has been the nucleus for centuries now. In good and bad times it goes up and down. NOw it is down and about 5,000 of 25,000 laid off work until a recovery, if it comes. Financial center of activity is also pronounced.
