  1. Not much to take pictures of, it's Christmas Village this weekend, so I bet they are holding off on starting. I'm sure the rain hasn't helped either.
  2. I haven't seen anything. They've blocked and unblocked the road a few times. I'll see if I can get some pictures when I drive by today. The park on the corner of Craighead and Bransford is super close to be doing done.
  3. Don't know about Craighead but on 4th Ave S and Chestnut, it's been described to me, that they will block lessers road so farther down the line somewhere they aren't blocking a major highway. I think it's just a load of crap and they don't particularly care what they do, because like PruneTracy said, they can do whatever they want with zero repercussions. It's quite the risk, I've seen ambulances coming down 4th that have had to turn off their lights and I guess just pass the call off to another ambulance that was past the train.
  4. We've been working to get the intersection at 4th Ave and Hart St and where the train crosses Chestnut St to be quiet intersections where the train doesn't blow it's horn. But it involves a lot of public works and CSX so it's quite an undertaking. It also involves full length road barriers and a number of other things and is going to cost somewhere in the range of 500k... So that money has to be found. Now with the soccer stadium moving forward it's slowed a bit as I think there is going to have to be something more comprehensive done on 4th Ave S and 2nd Ave S. As far as insulation, there is supposed to be one of those automated parking garages between the train and the building. It was in the initials plans, not sure if it's still in the budget.
  5. Nice, I had almost given up on that place. Hopefully they have kept the retail elements in the original plans.

    "It also means no more lengthy breaks during rush hours, as the devices can instantly prove that long delays were taken during the day and were made up late at night. “If I start this morning, I can't take off in the middle of the day and start again. I have to keep going until my time runs out,” said Jim Jernigan, owner of Jernigan Trucking." This seems like a wild over sight? If they aren't driving (as proved by the device) then that means they were most likely resting and NOT driving?

    So I'm thinking something like this. The perspective is a bit off.

    Parking has been the main issue. But the issues are pretty free form and prone to changing.

    Square foootage would be basically the same for conditioned versus un-conditioned. Unless something has changed drastically. Everything is just more consolidated.

    I'm sure they are going to start tearing up pavement, pulling up telephone poles, etc.

    I was wondering the same thing, I haven't seen any though.

    Ha, I've had my fair share of fun there... I had a buddy that lived back there in late 2009. I can remember that's about as far downtown as I used to go, then it was back to midtown.

    So the city needs a consistent plan, that they tackle on a non-glacial timeframe, that they actually complete. Doesn't bode well, ha.
