Business As Usual

12 May

Yes. The streets are being torn up. No. It’s not as crazy as people make it out to be. Riding my bike through Main Gate, Fourth Avenue and downtown districts recently revealed that everyone is still open for business and people are still visiting those destinations. While some think all of Fourth Ave is shut down, only University to Sixth Street is currently under renovation. And, yeah, there are a couple of blocks at Congress closed, but you can still stop into all the stores. OK. I’m not gonna lie. I stopped in at Hub to get my requisite salted caramel ice cream. It’s true that the work plans currently underway weren’t the plans shared at meetings. However, what better time to rip things up? Summer approaches and the town sleeps. A few days ago, I eyed a stack of rails on University in a new section that took less than a week to rip up.

Hey, we’re already one month into this. Three to go! And, whether you’re a fan of the approaching light rail or not, it behooves all of us to support local business. We’re in this together. Spending local dollars benefits us all. Kum bah yah.
