No, you are not wrong. They have less than a dozen guys working. Have not laid the first board yet. They are building a $45M B Walk on top of 80 year old concrete supports. I would think for that kind of money, you would have a new support structure to build on top of.

The Dems are finished. Everyone I talk with is pissed.

I see the concrete base is beginning to be installed. Slow but at least some progress. I am hoping that a lack of material is slowing this down, not a lack of workers.

I think the pre fab conrete is the road decking that will be the bike and vehicle lane in the center of the b walk. No actual boards being laid yet. I will bet this will finish right before election time with a big photo op about how great of a job they did with it to help them get re elected. If you liked being without a b walk for the Summer when it was unnecessary voters will vote for them again, or maybe they liked having their taxes raised every few months, etc.
