Just wait until they start to finish the fancy brick crosswalk across Broad street. The traffic backup will be hilarious!

Nice. Now we need a left turn light when going north.

They can’t come close to keeping the brickwork maintained that already exists in terms of sidewalks and crosswalks.

And they are doing more than that. They dug a trench on the east (?) side of 21st and there’s a coil of orange tubing. Also looks like new storm drains have been put in? But I’m with you. It would be a joy to see the brick work on that side of the street fixed in addition to finishing the intersection work. Walking there is like an ankle-breaking game of Frogger.

@BAF – From what I’ve seen, the newer brick sidewalks are put down over a cement foundation, which should hold up better than the “just brick” kind from back in the day.
