No Passage

I think a lot of us here on the Island are getting sick of the street remodeling/repair project going on downtown. It has been going on since last December 15.

Some streets are totally impassable by car. Some are difficult even by foot. It seems every street right now has something going on with it and is torn up in some capacity. Parking downtown is getting nye on to impossible.

Even the streets that were finished, like the northern most block of Hidalgo, have had to be torn up and repaved. They laid the paver stones to all drain to the middle of the street instead of to the edges!

So here are a couple of pictures of what is going on with Avenue Hidalgo right now. Watch your step!






Notice how well I kept my opinions to myself!

LAB: we are on the same page!

Debbie: (because I know it was you and not Carl commenting!): yes. there are little trickles of blood running out of the corners of my mouth. I'm trying to turn over a new leaf but I don't think it will last long!

I can't believe that is still going on. No wait, yes I can. Part of the stimulus package to create new jobs? ;>)

Looks and sounds like Houston, TX! So glad I got out of that city. Austin seems to have it a little more together.
