Menomonee Valley, Milwaukee

I was biking across the 35th Street viaduct Friday afternoon and noticed that there's a lot of grading and earth-moving going on down in the valley:

This part of the valley used to be a rail yard.... there's a photograph of it during its heyday here. The old County Stadium is visible in the background; it's since been replaced by the more massive Miller Park with its movable roof. Also notice the turntable and the small building just to the right of the bright yellow sign -- those are about the only remants left today.

There are apparently plans afoot to try and save the two smokestacks as local landmarks: details here, along with confirmation that a road is indeed being extended through this part of the valley.
