While it felt to many of us that the DEP's Water Tunnel Project should've wrapped up long ago, the City eased some irritation with this attractive upgraded road that serves a second purpose of giving the Garden Club a worthy new entrance. 

Once the completion date for the Water Tunnel Project skipped past the one year past due mark, that sign disappeared, but this much better than expected work may signal that the end is in sight.

We may even forget the peculiar horseshoe road to nowhere that used to loop through the space.

That all depends on what's happening behind the new construction border.
