I almost mistook this as Division somewhere but this was how Powell Blvd looked before the wholesale clearence of property on the south side of the road to make way for a new freeway. More on that here, if you are unfamiliar.
I have always thought Powell through this section was much to spacious given the traffic it handles. And those strange sidings with angle parking are strange and unecessiary. Seems like a great place to do some dedicated right-of-way transit but apparently the plan for BRT on Powell appears scrapped according to this Metro update, and how that everything is controlled by idiots at the federal level, I am sure there will be little to no matching funds anyway. Sigh.
