ION - Waterloo Region's Light Rail Transit

Two clearance issues caught in this video, first with the construction barrel at the end of the curb (not a permanent fixture) and then an issue with the "LRT This Lane" sign on the pole at the far side of the intersection.

None of these involved the actual vehicle, just the 'foam fingers' of the clearance rig.  These do however represent a worst case envelope that allows for expansion, contraction, and a little bit of rock and roll, so that sign will have to be dealt with.

Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Fun to look back at clips like this: 2 years ago, Kansas City was doing the same thing we did yesterday.

Me too. I’m interested to see just what birbs look like — I’ve never heard of them before! Tongue

Also I just wanted to say, way to debunk on Twitter the “can’t deliver to my business” person! Now if only they would interview you to provide that information right in the newscast.

It's striking how much more positive and informative this is than anything CTV has ever broadcast about ION.
