Thanks! Very helpful info. Since the patched areas cross (and ruin) the nicely paving-lined concrete crosswalks, etc. I hope it's all redone to look right in the "end" (mindful that there's never really a final state to anything around here).
Can anyone work out why we're daily tearing up random strips of road, digging down a foot or so, and then filling it back in? Any connection with the work on the ground around the new building which has been moving forward recently?
