I caught this sign over the weekend down at 3rd and Grand. My assumption is that a local business owner (Corner Cafe) is using one of the street closing signs to put his own sign up to encouract people to call the Action Center. This "construction" has been going on now for at least the past 5 months, and I don't see a lot of progress being made. Apparently the business owner doesn't either.
Delayed construction projects can be very harmful to small businesses who lose visibility from the street, street traffic, pedestrian traffic, or in the case of the Corner Cafe, their parking lot get used for a street because the real street is closed (ps, you jerks doing this know who you are and should be more considerate to the business owner, just go a 1/2 block and make the loop).
KC needs to be sure projects like this -- whatever it is they are doing -- don't drag on for months needlessly. Leaving big empty holes is not a solution to the problem of metal plates in the city.
