Vine Street streetscape photo update, 5/19/09

A massive streetscape project is under construction along Vine Street, between 12th and 14th streets, as part of Gateway Quarter Phase III.

The project includes buried utility lines, new sidewalks and curbs, new lighting and traffic signals, street trees, new signage and meter poles, and bicycle and newspaper racks.

Apparently, the project has been delayed a couple of weeks due to shipment of incorrect bricks!

Merchants, residents, and neighborhood stakeholders hope that the sidewalks are completed in time for the Go OTR 5K Run/Walk on June 20.

There are 9 photos in this slideshow, starting at 14th Street and working southward.
