The construction seems to be coming along. A lot of the road is still blocked off and I got a real scare when a customer said the path was closed completely (originally, certain parts were open to pedestrians), but it seems the crews are taking things bit by bit. I’ve never seen what the inside of the sidewalk looks like before. I mean, I’ve seen people lay down cement, but I’ve never seen it hollowed out before. It’s actually pretty cool.
By my job, the city is doing construction. It started last weekend and is supposed to continue until the beginning of September. That said, the whole area is closed off, for the most part until the project is completed.
The entire street is blocked off with fencing and barricades on both sides. These blockades start at the beginning of the block.
It looks like something out of a zombie movie or post-Apocalyptic video game. It’s pretty creepy, especially at night time.
Not seeing people drive there is so surreal. Most people assume the area is closed completely, but it is in fact open to walkers. It’s a pain to navigate through the numerous detours and fencing, but it is doable. Mostly the commuters using the train station in the middle of this road still go here.
There are detours directing walkers, but they are really confusing and very narrow. I’m glad that I don’t mind small spaces.
Brother and I have taken to walking along the river, before I head in to work each week. This week, we found an entrance to a portion next to the local highway, and were able to see bits that we never have before.
There were some really shallow bits and some really deep bits. At some points, we could see the water’s flow by how the settlement at the bottom seemed to be raked in one direction or another.
We were also amazed by the variety of life we saw. For years people called this one a dead river, but that isn’t the case at all. There were all sorts of fish from tiny black fish to things that looked like giant bass/koi hybrids! I think I even saw a crayfish!
