Year 2, Day 233: 19 June 2014

This is indeed a momentous occasion. The fence is down!
For the first time since 9 January 2013, the sidewalk is unobstructed and the street is open to traffic; Doggie Demeanor and i took a stroll right down the middle of the street this afternoon, just because we could. The section of Farwell running under the L viaduct has also reopened to traffic. 
The substation construction project is finally winding down, and it won't be long until it is completely finished. The building looks beautiful and is now fully visible at ground level, so if you're in the area stroll on over and have a look!  

Preparing to reopen Farwell at Glenwood (west side of the viaduct)

Moving the Jersey barriers 

The fencing was stacked up and carted away,
looking much the worse for wear after a year and a half
of withstanding the elements.

Smooth sailing under the viaduct

At long last, an unobstructed view from the corner of Glenwood and Farwell.
