Thank you for attending the recent Streetscape Town Hall meetings and sharing your ideas and concerns. We heard them loud and clear and are making every effort to address each one of them.

The work being done this week is repetitive for the next few weeks in each block being worked on. Simultaneous roadway reconstruction work along Miracle Mile from Salzedo to Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Ponce de Leon to Galiano Street will continue this week along with work at Giralda Avenue. This work includes trench excavation, drainage work, irrigation pipe and tree installation.
Pedestrian access to the stores will be maintained at all times. New paths and crosswalks are temporarily being installed as constructions progresses.

Block 100 – Small trench excavation will start for tree installation. Some of the trees being installed can be seen at block 200. The tree installation will start at the end of the week on the west end of the block.
