David stopped by the ballpark yesterday and filed this report on the ongoing sidewalk construction, which ought to be finished well before Opening Day:
On the Sheffield Ave. side, the new sidewalk bricks will obviously join up with the bricks installed on that sidewalk last year after the bleacher reconstruction. On the Addison St. side, the sidewalk is still torn up all the way to where it widens, behind Gate F.
Gate D, at Addison and Sheffield, around the Harry Caray statue; bricks stacked up on Sheffield; for construction fans, a closer view of the bricks, as seen on the Sheffield side; area just west of the Harry Caray statue, where the "patio" area begins.
