Well, I guess the money was available and they'd almost built it before I noticed it, maybe because I've been out of town :-) Two weeks ago they were still building it. Here's a clip showing what it looked like then.
The excavator was trying to get out but the cars got in the way.
And here's what it looked like today. Looks quite good, actually. It just isn't smooth as the road is about two inches lower than the bikeway. Even though the kerb stones are tilted to make riding easier it certainly is bumpy.
What I've read on the newspaper they're drilling and using explosives already to blast the bedrock. At the moment it looked like there was a hole in the ground but not a tunnel yet. Must be interesting to live on the houses on top of the future parking garage and hear the drills and explosions from below. And there's a hotel right next to it, too. I wonder if they mention the noisy construction site in their brochures. :-P
