    Thought I would post an update on the Main Street road construction. At the beginning of our November trip, the east side of Main Street was still blocked of, as they put the finishing touches on the new lanes. A couple days later, everything was reversed, as the completed east side was opened up, with one lane in each direction, and the west side lanes were closed off to begin the tear-up on that side. This includes the area from Main Street Station down past the bus station, and at busy times, traffic was a nightmare.

    Just thought I would post a few pics to help folks understand what is actually going on on Main Street. We were just there this weekend staying 4 nights at MSS. I snapped these with the intention of starting a thread but you beat me to it. I hope you don't mind me piggy backing on your post.

    Wow. They're still not done? The pics look not that much different than what I've seen on my trip this past August!

    Yeah, what you saw in August was the construction on the east-side lanes, with the old west-side lanes open (one north / one south).
    In early November, the east-side lanes were completed (one north / one south), and the construction began on the two west-side lanes.
    I'm hoping that "maybe" it will be all finished by April ... ????

    Close Buddha! I asked one of the workers and they said sometime in May. Jeez, that seems like a long time...
