  1. I just want to say thanks for the fork heart knife throw back! Such an interesting microcosm of the neighborhood, played out in an incredibly short time frame. Makes me want to hop even further into the way back machine and grabbing a beer at Coopers.
  2. Also need to calculate footer size and depth, as well as determine other civil/structural requirements.
  3. Umm, you know sound kind of crazy right? I mean honestly this latest "wave" of shootings is nothing. I mean lets think back to the days of triple murders south of liberty for some perspective on where we have come from.

    Except that the "gang of 5" has now paid into coast war chest so at the end of the day a fairly big negative in my book.
  5. Fyi https://www.google.com/amp/s/deadspin.com/louisvilles-arena-deal-is-a-complete-disaster-1797126730/amp
  6. Agreed 100%. It really is about access and repair and the fact that they would much rather go through asphalt vs concrete when making repairs.
  7. I'd guess they can justify it since there now will be a crosswalk on Sycamore.
  8. Not saying you can't put a manhole on the sidewalk, I'm saying you don't put a manhole to a water main. A water main is typically surrounded by a fill material and not really accessed except for repairs.
  9. I think the real reason is that they prefer to have mains under asphalt vs concrete as it makes repairs much easier. Regarding a manhole for a water main, outside of some very very unique circumstances they don't really exist.
  10. What exactly is a water manhole? You don't enter a water main as it is a closed system where the sewer system is not. Are you referring to on of the a curb key cover?
  11. With where construction is currently I don't think you will be seeing a skywalk anytime soon.
  12. Some of it certainly was from seagrams as they made alot of there "puckers" line there. I worked construction a fair bit at Gividuan, got some really interesting smells when tearing out old floor tile and drains in assorted production areas.
  13. Yes it should have been but that could have been what let to them trying to pull it off with seriously cut rate contractors.
  14. Yeah when I saw the work on Garfield starting I was not too hopeful as it was clear to me they were not utilizing a competent GC.
  15. Speaking of things that have fallen off the radar, anyone know if the rehab of the Garfield Suites will ever be resurrected?
