  1. Work is well underway on the next re-route of the Seymour-Lieberman running trail. It looks like they are going to replace those last few hundred meters of the trail that run right up next to Memorial Drive just east of the land bridges. The trail is going to be moved north into the park 20 or 30 meters, but that means that the trail will now have to cross that big gulley. Most of the trees have been cleared so they can start working on the bridge that will be needed.
  2. I vote to excavate the entire plaza down to bayou level and have a bayou spur run under the street and come up to the front of the building like the San Antonio Convention Center.
  3. My wife and I ate there on Saturday and it was very good. But be warned, the dining room is small with only about six tables. It was crowded so we ended up eating outside at a table that was basically protected from the wind, but it was still kinda cold.
  4. A little progress on the bike trail/new park downtown.
  5. They opened the jogging trail reroute. This new section runs about 100 m north of the old trail that is directly adjacent to Memorial Drive. The old trail is going to need to be extensively modified or eliminated because it must be in the way of the downslope of the bridge. The new section is nice. It runs though the woods instead of right next to the street with the sounds of the cars, the exhaust and the general unnerving feeling of being that close to the fast moving cars on Memorial. Unfortunately it doesn't totally eliminate all of that section. There is still a part right by the road where it will be difficult to move the trail because of a gulley and where the golf course comes pretty far south. But it is way better than it used to be.
  6. They started on the retaining walls over the tunnel ends. This was the far east end of the eastbound lane. They were pouring concrete on the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving.
  7. The tunnel end transitions are progressing slowly. They've installed six of the eight with the two most westwardly left to do. And there hasn't been any visible progress on the reroute of the jogging trail along that part of Memorial.
  8. They finally started installing the end transition sections on the eastern most ends of the tunnels.
  9. Looks like they're starting on the end transitions of the tunnels. They removed some of the dirt that was in the way and there are these new concrete arcs being set up.
  10. The dirt has reached the top of the easterly tunnels.
  11. The dirt is getting higher on the north side of the tunnels. And they are installing that black covering on the outside of the concrete. I haven't seen any progress on the end of the tunnel transitions yet.
  12. Daylight Saving Time allowed enough light for me to see all of the dirt that they've piled up on the south side of the tunnels. It's a lot more than shown here. And they're using a fleet of dump trucks to get the job done.
  13. They've begun assembling the fourth tunnel.
  14. The walls have been up for a few weeks and they finally finished filling in the big hole where the parking lot is supposed to be.
  15. The first section of a westwardly tunnel is up.
