As someone who regularly travels on Euclid (twice daily through University Circle and frequently from 4th Street up through Playhouse Square and beyond), I have almost become immune to the deplorable conditions while construction is supposedly going on.
I say "supposedly" because it is rare that I witness any activity.
I was so bummed when the world's spotlight was on us for the Cavs-Spurs series and our major avenue looked like a war zone.
If I have someone in the car while I am commuting from Mayfield to Chester on Euclid every day we always comment about the lack of progress. There is usually not a worker to be seen. Occasionally there will be a pickup truck with someone on the phone inside the vehicle but not much more.
So today I am starting a public posting. I don't expect it to shame anyone into activity but it will make me feel better (grin)
Thursday 8/23/07 9:15 AM. There were Zero, 0, nada, nil, zilch workers on the stretch between Mayfield and Chester on Euclid. No activity at all.
