Just a little photo offering of how things look near the intersection of 4th Street and Virginia Avenue SE
today, where actual excavation for the new Virginia Avenue Tunnel
is just getting underway.
Above Left: Looking east into the fresh excavation from 4th. Above Right: Looking west from 5th, with the excavation at left and a "scenic" vista directly ahead.
Above Left: The actual excavation, just east of 4th. Above Right: The view down 4th from north of the freeway. Watch for daytime road closures over the next few days/weeks of 4th from here to I Street.
Above: There's a reason the houses in the 300 block of Virginia Avenue are referred to as "front-row residences." (Though note that this is not tunnel excavation, but work on the temporary sidewalk and driveway in this block.)
