Bye, bye bridge

“We are anticipating completion of the removal of the last of the steel deck plat girder spans sometime next week,” wrote Terry Peterson with Omaha Track Material – the outfit handling the project. “Once that is complete, we will begin preparation for the demolition of the six concrete piers.”

Carver’s river crossing was originally built in 1871 by the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railway (M&St.L). The railroad bested steamboats in the area by allowing for travel year round, including when the river levels were too low or the water frozen. It also allowed for important connections between Minneapolis and St. Paul to points west and south.

Carver Current Server Upgraded

For the last year I’ve been hosting Carver Current out of a server in my home. This has been convenient and worked well for the most part.

Recently I migrated to a different server in my house, and since then, I’ve had about 5 days of downtime and significantly slower response times.

In order to increase speed and reliability, I have migrated the site again to a virtual server in a data center. Hopefully this will really improve things for everyone. Thanks for reading!
