So first off, that is awesome! I absolutely love the roof! Makes me wonder though... The buildings to the left and right are not currently there, so does mean that they are building those too? Or did they just through some stuff in on the sides to make it look nice?

The latter, but hopefully this will lead to increased investment on that block!

We can see a person peeing in the "Marie's" space, per normal. LOL!

Interesting that they are having a discussion about this. I'm not sure what can be done here due to the way Columbia and 13th Ave are offset. Adding another light shouldn't really be an option because that would make 5 lights in about 300 ft.

Wasn't the pedestrian overpass suppose to go somewhere around there?

Maybe once the rest of the public housing is removed maybe the offset can be removed as well. At least on the east side.

There was talk of the pedestrian overpass going in there but there hasn't been any talk of this in some time. With the new light in at Boulevard Ave, this might have pushed the need for that bridge back a little as it has helped. And the intersection referenced here is south of the public housing with All Med and Cabell Huntington Home Health on either side so not likely either of those would move. I really can't think of much that they could physically do to this intersection without a massive investment, which isn't likely.

In other news, the new Marshall Shuttle from TTA started up again recently:

You're right. For whatever reason I was thinking of Charleston Ave.


I agree with you in that I can't think of anything that can be done to improve that intersection, unless you buy out the businesses so you can use the lots to create a better intersection. Let's hope that the solution isn't another traffic light. That is the last thing that section of Hal Greer needs. A better solution is the pedestrian bridge.
