The sidewalk maintenance along Union St. from MLK up to 34th has been making steady progress despite the wintry weather of the last month. Some of the repaving is already complete along the south sidewalk, and last week a large tree on the 3100 block was removed to begin sidewalk restoration.
According to Liz Ellis, the Program Coordinator for SDOT Bridging the Gap Sidewalk Safety Repair, her crew is also working on a problem spot at 29th and Cherry (shown in the photo here) where a tree has been identified for removal due to decay in the trunk. That removal is expected to happen this week in the hopes of repairing the Cherry St. stretch in time for the Christmas holiday.
There are a few other trees that may need to come out along Union as the sidewalk restoration process continues – we’ll keep you up to date on that news as we hear about it.
