Construction Update

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, or possibly a stuck CD for younger folks, utility work is continuing on the 100 Block of S. Gay Street. Electrical work and some work on the gas line is getting closer to completion and excavation and installation is beginning for the stormwater systems.

The work site is beginning to shape up though, and we hope the actual work associated with excavation will be completed soon. At that point we will not have to have as much heavy equipment on site and we will be able to take down the burlap screens on the fencing.

Some folks may not be aware of the entrance into the underground on the west side so here is a pic taken from the Gay Street Viaduct. A pic was taken straight on last week but I thought this was an interesting perspective as well.

This is a picture taken under the sidewalk on the eastern side of the street. To the left is the Emporium and to the right is the retaining wall under Gay Street. You can also see one of the glass panels in the sidewalk above. Obviously, this area is wider and in much better shape than the other side of the street. An electrical vault must be removed to proceed with opening up this section.

  1. Thanks for making that mid-block cut across path. I use it most days. And, thanks for all the great pictures.
