When this project started just over a year ago, they said September, 2014, and I guess they meant it…they paved the new parking lot on Saturday, the 15th. The arched entrance went up Tuesday, this pic was taken Wednesday and today the lot was so full of vendor trucks that they had to shuffle them around to let people in and out. The landscaping is well along, and they started replacing the old sidewalk yesterday and finished it around the corner onto Spring Street today…also installed a sliding gate at the Spring Street entrance. There will be another entrance on 4 1/2 Street.
So they’ll just be getting settled in when we start to leave. Let’s hope that the library renovation will be done as fast and efficiently as this one was.
