Georgia Street Update 1

The Georgia Street project in downtown Indianapolis is pushing full steam ahead right now! I figured that since we cover the mundane and complain about the smallest of things that we should also be celebrating projects that stand on their own as great projects. To that end, I intend to try and keep pace with the Georgia Street project as it unfolds over the next several months. With a timeline that slates its completion before the Super Bowl, progress will be swift. With that, here is the first update to the project!

On February 15th, I was able to take some night shots. Above, you will see the vantage point from Georgia and Capitol looking east. You can see that preliminary work had been done at this point including utility relocation and some early pavement tear up.

Yesterday, I was able to stop by on my way to school and take advantage of some fantastic lighting to take the next two photos of progress. As you can see, in the past 5 weeks a lot of progress has been made. Pavement is gone for the most part and has been replaced by a huge hole in the ground. Some concrete forms which I assume are part of the drainage system are in place. At this rate, street level construction should be upon us just as the warm weather sets in for the year. This is all I have today, but check back regularly to keep up.

    Thanks for update Curt. This project makes so much sense to me and for Indy. I can’t wait to see the finished product. I really believe this project will show well for Indianapolis and I hope will be used far beyond “major sporting” events. Anything that that adds “street life” to a city that enhances the vitality and vibrancy to the downtown.
