Barricades and Barrels


Downtown Tuscaloosa is a bit of a mess right now. (Progress...I'm agin' it.)
But I'm sure it will be lovely once it is all finished. Unexpected finds and old sewer lines have delayed the construction of infrastructure to support the new federal courthouse. The top two photos show University Blvd. facing east. Below are facing west and the new courthouse site.

I'd kinda get the impression "they" didn't want me driving on those streets!

Just think how bootiful it will be when it is all finished.

Sometimes, though, it seems they never finish.

A familiar story here too at the moment. We just have to grit our teeth with the endless diversions and think about how nice it'll be when it's finished.

I hope they get it taken care of soon! There's nothing worse than a maze of detours and such.

That's a sight you see just about everywhere...

But on the bright side, they are not as bad as cities like Chicago that tare several streets, and seemingly never finish...
