Repaving Telegraph Ave.

May 21 Update:

The material needed to continue construction on the bus stops was delivered the week of May 10th. On May 17th, the contractor restarted work on the unfinished bus stop at the Southwest corner of West MacArthur and Telegraph, and is continuing work on the bus stops from 40th St, working northbound until 51st. The hole beneath the sidewalk at 5020 Telegraph Ave has been filled with a concrete slurry, and the sidewalk has been repaired.
