3rd Ave. Feels the Love!

Two blocks closed (from Virginia to Pine; one in Belltown, the other in downtown), a phalanx of metal monsters and the strains of Baroness von Jackhammer in the air. Ah, the SDOT is at it again. This time, the object of their affection is 3rd Ave. And why not? That street needs as much help as it can get. I mean, it's Belltown's crummiest street. Here are some pictures:

I have no idea what they're trying to accomplish. All I know is that those two blocks don't seem to need it. I mean, the street ain't full of holes or anything. Maybe they're going to replace what they've got with a more appealing shade of pavement. Whatever improvements they make will be an improvement, because it's 3rd Ave. after all.
