In May I emailed to see if you knew when the construction at Cardozo High School would be finished and you found the answer for me right away. Now I wanted to update you on what clearly looks like progress, even to the inexpert eye. The crew has been working hard in this hot weather. Today, they were clearing out a lot of the construction materials from in front of the building, building up the walls that border the sidewalk, and even planting trees. The whole front staircase is visible now. It’s been hidden behind construction materials and machinery since the work began.
This construction project has felt eternal, has been a serious inconvenience, and the jackhammers drive me nuts, but I have to give the construction crew a lot of credit. The same guys have been working traffic on the corner of 13th and Clifton for the last year and a half, and they have always been friendly and respectful. One of the hassles of living next to a construction site is finding your car stuck on a road blocked in every direction by construction vehicles, but the crew have always done their best to minimize these headaches. Their attitude has kept me more cheerful about the whole thing.”
