    It's designed to be by and large built in the median of I5.  It has to deviate several times due to curves (including one short tunnel), but it's largely over the interstate.

    I'm still not 100% on the cost figures, but apart from a few issues I had when reading the plan (which I'm sure can be resolved - mainly due to thermal stress and repair speed), I think it's quite doable and well thought-out.  The math I did on the engineering figures and materials pricing largely checks out.

    Já þýðir já. Nei þýðir nei. Hvað er svona erfitt við það?
