The New Traffic Light Things

As I drive in and out of downtown each day, making my way between Germantown, Music Row, Vandy and Green Hills, I’m really digging the new traffic light holder things – what do you call them – lamp posts?

If you haven’t seen them, check out 8th Avenue from Demonbruen to James Robertson. The sidewalks were re-poured a month or so ago, and the street lights and traffic signals are getting updated with a newer look. It’s pleasing to the eye. However, it looks like none of them have the pedestrian button yet. This is key for a guy like me who jogs downtown. I like to be able to hold up traffic with more than the look of my short shorts.

Here’s to the beatiful days of the concrete jungle we call downtown.

    I’m going to start whistling at you and your short shorts when I see you out jogging.
