The installation of the Belgian blocks started Washington Street this week. We noticed they are installing new granite blocks in the middle of the street, not seen in the other streets that are being repaved with Belgian blocks. The Community Construction Liaison is calling it “a new 14″ thermal block bicycle lane”.
Other activities being done this week:
- Washington and Water Street – removal of existing street lights/energize newly installed street lights
- Washington Street from Plymouth to Water Streets – Place temporary asphalt around all the manhole covers and Gas head
- Water Street between Washington/Adams Street – Continue reinstallation of the Belgian Blocks, install Belgian Blocks bicycle lane and granite crosswalks
