Let's see what you're made of : Part 2

On my way to work this morning I saw something pretty remarkable - construction workers pulling out granite pavers AND streetcar track in one smooth move:

Unfortunately we flew by too quick to take a video. Luckily, I happened to be at a meeting this afternoon out near Eustis, so I got the chance to go hang on the fence and see more excavation - namely what's under the granite. Spoiler alert: it's wood.

Really icky, contaminated wood, I'm sure. How long do we think that's been down there?

It was a paver-heavy kind day apparently, since my meeting out at Eustis was to take a look at the samples of what's going into the outer edge of the new University sidewalks (part of that whole day job thing). Here is the sneak preview, folks!

Coming to a sidewalk near you!
