Ok, I have to brag and I am very excited. This is a project that began as a rehabilitation. I was assigned this project to manage design back in November 05.
Word got out that the City was planning to spend time/money on this gateway without "sprucing it up", just preventative maintenance and various interests began pushing for more. So over the past year, a panel representing the interests (including myself) have been working to get where we are today.
It has been a wonderful project to work on with so many planners, developers, engineers etc.
So NOW, we just have to get the money to build it . The estimate is only $100+ million lol
