California's infamous State Route 46, otherwise known as "Blood Alley," is slated for its first safety updates in over a decade. After an extended funding battle, Caltrans will break ground on improvements today. Rest in peace, little bastard.

H.A.R.B. (formerly two wheels are enough)

I only drove on the 46 once, but I clearly remember two things about the drive: the spot where James Dean was killed, and that nearby there is a city limits sign for a town (whose name I do not recall) where the elevation of the town is an order of magnitude larger than its population.

I have a weird thing with numbers. #jamesdean
