And 4 more blocks to go: Site work began last week here in East Downtown to chunk up the pavement into such tidy piles and clear the way for that 5-block pedestrian path known as the EaDo Promenade. These photos show what the very north end of the path, at McKinney and Bastrop St. a block south of BBVA Compass Stadium, looks like, as of yesterday:
You can see the stadium in the background of the photo. From here, the ground will be cleared and graded and Bastrop, going south, widened . . .
. . . until Bell St. Anton Sinkewich, the director of the EaDo Management District, has said previously that the first phase of the promenade — to include a crushed-granite path and trees — is intended to be modest, so it might include more amenities as need or want demands them.
