The City Construction Branch is reporting that because of a mix up with AT&T, this project will be on hold for approximately 6 months. You will probably see some work being done along the limits of the project, but it will be AT&T moving their assets out of the way of the city’s construction. Once the project is a “go”, there will be a public meeting and pre-construction meeting.
