A Light at the End of the Tunnel

12 Oct

A couple of months ago, I wrote about how my street was under a crazy amount of construction. Because of the construction, I didn’t feel comfortable bringing a new foster dog into my home. With all the noise, banging, and yelling, my home could have very well been just as stressful for a dog from a shelter as the shelter was. Here’s what my street looks like now:

They’ve dug out the street and inserted those wooden planks to support the road, essentially. The goal of the job is to replace the underground water mains with larger ones to compensate for all the new luxury high-rises that have been built in the neighborhood, allowing for a great flow of water to all of the residents. It’s been quite the project, and the entire job, which is happening on several different streets in the area, wont be entirely complete until 2017!

But today, I was speaking with one of the workmen who I’ve gotten to know (wouldn’t you know it, he likes my pittie!), and got some wonderful news! The work on my street ends next week! The street gets resealed, the Caterpillar machines move out and the wood planks get repurposed for fire wood. Well, maybe not that last one, but the wood planks will be going somewhere, and it’s not here.


Stay tuned…

    I bet you are relieved! I’m not sure my sanity could have stood waiting until 2017. Yikes!
