When all work stopped on the Hidalgo Avenue project December 15th, I was skeptical that they would really be back to continue with it on January 16th. Especially when they left it in this condition.
Cynical old me was certainly surprised when, in fact, workers showed up on the 16th, put up this sign and dug right in again.
This is the view looking north. The plastic chairs in the left of the picture are Fredy's Restaurant. They dug a trench in December but now they are actually stripping the pavement from curb to curb.
It appears that they are indeed doing a little section at a time to avoid disturbing tourism as much as possible. Good for them. I hope they get this whole thing over with quickly though.
