I can't believe it! The long expected, long delayed, often postponed and much talked about Avenue Hidalgo remodel project is finally under way! As far as I can tell, it started on December 9th. Here's how far along they were on the second day.
For those of you unfamiliar with this street, this is the north end. They will be working their way south, block by block. When I took this picture, they were as far as Fredy's Restaurant.
Looks to me like it is going to be a big mess.
I heard today that they are going to dig the trench, put whatever, wires and stuff, in and then cover it up. Block by block. Then they will go back and start over and rip up the road surface and redo that block by block. We shall see. One hears all kinds of things about this project.
The best part? The crew will stop working on Dec 15 for the holidays and not return to the project until January 16. I wonder how far along they will get in 7 days?
