Whether you think the planned Route 238 Corridor Improvement Project (aka the “mini-loop”) is a great idea or a horrible one, you have to admit the city’s new renderings of the project are more colorful than those loop maps we keep running in the paper.

Update: For more information, you can read the entire final environmental impact report in PDF form. The City Council is scheduled to vote on the report and thereby adopt the project on Nov. 27. We’ve also published a little map and stories on this.
