“Dear PoPville,

Any idea when the fencing will come down?”

From Deputy Mayor John J. Falcicchio Wednesday:

“We are told that breakdown will start in earnest at 6 pm and will likely take about 36 hours.

That aligns with the end of the Inauguration Pause on indoor dining which is set to expire on Friday, January 22, at 5 am. Restaurants will then be able to return to 25% indoor.

Crews will remove barriers/fencing on major streets like 7th, 9th, 12th… working east to west. They will also begin opening garages that were blocked as a precaution. This will take some time. Give crews time/space to work safely”
