trowels a section of new sidewalk today at
phase of Streetscape. Workers are laying
down 1,600 feet of concrete sidewalks and ramps that include tactile strips also called “blind lines,” along with anti-slip wheelchair pads. Rain has slowed the cement work, but better
weather is allowing the crews to catch up and finish the sidewalk work, which is
expected to be completed in about two weeks.
