While walking around the future home of Performing Arts High School with über planner Stevan Stipanovich the other evening, we noticed the tell-tale signs of street resurfacing. And presto, two weeks later, in my neighborhood, Main/Jefferson - Ferry/Utica, two streets were just stripped and readied for refsurfacing. I spoke to a few neighbors and we couldn't remember when the side streets here had received so much attention. On the left is a shot of Welker Street looking south from Woodlawn and on the right is Verplank Street looking south from Woodlawn. Both streets from Ferry to Utica will be completed by the end of the week.
Two major streets in the neighborhood, Masten and Michigan Avenues, were resurfaced last summer and turned into two-way streets. New ADA compliant cross walks, traffic lights and timed crossing lights, too.
Is this sort of resurfacing happening all over the City?
