Crews at 4th & Race have poured new sidewalks on 4th Street. Sidewalk trees and signage will be installed in the coming weeks, and the midblock section of the sidewalk will then open to the public. The portion of 4th Street nearest Race Street will remain off limits to the public while crews complete the remaining exterior façade work in that area.
