Forget about setting your alarm clock to get one of those Phatso’s Bakery glazed doughnuts before they sell out in the mornings. According to owner Richard Wilcox, he’s been sold out by the broken promises from the crew working on the street.
Highways have been completed faster, but, this single block of Welsh Street between 6th and 7th Streets has been under construction since November.
We last visited this project to talk about the sidewalk bump-outs that will create a challenging turn for the buses. I guess they’re there to stay since paving operations miraculously got started today.
Rumor had it the street will return to two-way traffic when it reopens.
No telling when the Phatso’s crew will return, if at all.
