It’s just before 9 a.m. and I am sitting on a grassy knoll, watching a huge crane pick up and move long pieces of reinforced steel. The racket of drills and hammers fills the air. Bone by bone, the skeleton of Blair station is coming to life. But I seem to be the only one paying much attention to what’s happening on the other side of the fence on this overcast Thursday morning.
In the distance, cars and trucks are backed up on the 174. The station teases drivers who might someday soon choose to glide into the city by train, instead of dealing with the daily bunch-up at the Split.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/walk-the-line-the-citizen-treks-across-the-biggest-infrastructure-project-in-ottawas-history
