Updated DID Kiosks

did-kiosk

Walking back from lunch today I came across some Downtown Improvement District workers updating the Information Kiosk on Weybosset street with a new graphic featuring the smiling image of a Clean & Safe Team member (aka Yellow Jackets). I forced one of the Yellow Jackets to pose for this photo, he was reluctant but smiled anyway.

PPAC Square: Good, bad, and ugly

The Good: Yellow Jackets

Yellow Jackets

DID Clean & Safe Team workers clearing snow

As always, the DID Clean & Safe Team workers were out in force today clearing snow. The Yellow Jackets are probably out of practice this year, but they got right back into the swing of things laying salt and clearing snow and slush out of the crosswalks.

The Bad: I didn’t know this was a parking lot

PPAC

Who do you gotta know to park here?

When plans for PPAC Square were unveiled I was under the impression that PPAC’s driveway would double as sidewalk space when there wasn’t any event happening at PPAC. Apparently I was wrong as the driveway was full of parked cars this afternoon. I don’t know who these cars belong to, but those are some sweet parking spaces they got.

The Ugly: National Grid doing their National Grid thing

National Grid

Ooh, fresh pavement, let’s rip it up!

No sooner has the paint dried on the double yellow lines than National Grid is out ripping up the pavement on Weybosset Street. This is not actually PPAC Square, it is down in front of Johnson & Wales, but close enough.

Let’s just assume that contrary to every other street National Grid has ever torn up, they will properly patch this street. I can assume that, right? RIGHT?
