Good afternoon, readers.
If you’re like me you’ve been dying to see some action on the site of the new DART Central Station, the new transit center that will replace the Walnut Street Transit Mall. Unfortunately for onlookers, most of the work to date has been behind the scenes, including the environmental abatement of lead paint and asbestos in the old building.
Last week, crews with the Weitz Company began securing the site with fencing so that demolition can begin later this month. Your editor had the opportunity to stop by the site this week and snap a few pictures. Nothing dramatic, just evidence that work is in fact getting underway. There will be plenty more updates in the future so check back here. As of this date, the project remains on track to be complete in fall 2012.
