Our guest photo this week comes from contributor Andy Arenson, who sent me a shot of 22nd and Meridian:
Here are some photos near 52nd and College. The triangular diverter is now placed in the street on 51st Street:
There are still a ton of utility poles in the sidewalks after this project. A bummer, but at least people should be able to get around them in the future.
Here was the preliminary station last week. It’s more complete now, but I don’t have photos of it:
