Google Maps updated their view of Rochester this week. Notice anything different? Let’s zoom in on that visual a bit…
For 50 years that visual of the Inner Loop encircling downtown Rochester has been etched into our minds. Now, like someone flipped a switch, the noose has been broken.
Someone asked me last week what we should call it now that it’s no longer a loop. It’s sort of become an awkward protrusion of I-490. Like a little lost strand of spaghetti, unsure of what to do with itself.
How about the Inner Horseshoe? I know, it doesn’t have quite the same RING to it. Heh heh.
