Further progress at 3rd & Locust

 What's that Amish boy looking at?
What's he doing?

 Well, he . . .
Hold on a minute until this truck passes.

 Uh, this could take a while.
What happened to that bypass that was supposed to solve this problem?

 Ah, there it is.
Workers at 3rd & Locust are removing an I-beam from the side of the building as part of a renovation project that was described HERE.

 The forklift operator is lowering the beam to the sidewalk.

 The two large panels on the side of the building will be removed, and full-length windows will be installed.

A few more instructions, and that's it for today.
