I thought that this project was already completed. What is still left to complete?

Construction in the plaza area under the Grand Avenue Bridge still requires finishing work, including landscaping, water features, and lighting. That work originally began on May 21, 2018 with granite delivery and installation. Construction in that area, and in 7th Street itself, was suspended during the busy seasons of summer and fall 2018. The 7th Street Beautification project includes a sanitary sewer repair/replacement for a section of sanitary sewer that was damaged during the Grand Avenue Bridge project. Replacement of this line, which is west of the elevator building, will ensure that surface improvements will not need to be disturbed in the near future. The overall project also includes a granite or concrete festival street in 7th Street from Cooper to the Grand Avenue Bridge, a splash pad water feature, fountains under the bridge, and a pedestrian plaza and landscaped area east of the elevator building.  The water features are not included in the bid award to be considered by Council on January 3.  Those elements will be considered by Council at a later date in 2019.
