It’s a pre-Harvest Homecoming miracle: Pedestrian crossing buttons at Spring & Pearl repaired after 6 (8?) (10?) months.


Well at least the buttons on the northeast and southeast corners have been replaced. I didn’t cross the street to examine the ones on the west side. But a win’s a win.

You know, maybe we’ve been looking at Harvest Homecoming all wrong these many years. After all, just before the festival kicks off each year, there is a crazed flurry of cleaning and repairs. I actually saw a four-man city crew on Market Street today, and only TWO of them were sitting.

If Harvest Homecoming ran all year long, might we actually have functional infrastructure?
