This week the roadway for the first block (Jones to Leavenworth) was poured. That is very exciting. Plans are to begin using that south side roadway at the end of April, still one way heading west.



You see a lot of activity at the intersections right now, and you also may notice the progress being made on the second block (Leavenworth to Hyde). That roadway will begin to take form in the next two weeks. Hopefully in the next week and a half the southwest sidewalk and corner at Hyde and Jefferson will be complete and ready for use.
