Here's a look at the road diet work that went down on Lincoln last night. Shortly after they got started, at around 10:00, Greg talked to "Ted the Button Popper King" who kicks things off by 1) popping up the little raised reflectors before 2) the paint is scraped away and 3) temporary reflective tabs are set up to re-mark the lanes. (in the old 4-lane configuration for now)

When Greg talked to Ted they were working the stretch between Nevada and Minnesota, and Ted said their goal was to get to Willow Street. When Greg checked in at 2:00am they were almost there, having stripped and tabbed their way to the Garden Theater, and setting up cones all the way to El Abra by Manley's Donuts.

I don't know how long into the night they work but it's even later than Greg, so we'll have to let you know how far they made it later. We will of course keep you posted as we see and hear more.
