Lane shift on Weybosset, students back

Weybosset Street

The lanes on Weybosset Street have shifted over to the new concrete road bed at PPAC Square. Removal of the old blacktop is underway infront of PPAC.

They are hard to see in the photo (I should hace taken a better one), but notice the new streetlights. One lamp hangs over the roadway, a lower one hangs over the sidewalk. Space above the sidewalk lamp allows for banners to be attached to the post.

Around the corner on Chestnut Street:

Chestnut Street

The students are indeed back. The sidewalks are like Manhattan on Weybosset Hill and into the Jewelry District.
