Renovation of the north block and dining terrace (former location of Sears) is making swift progress. Crews have broken ground on all of the buildings planned for the redevelopment, which includes a Cineopolis Cinema, a bowling alley lounge named Pinstripes and an underground fitness center.

The project not only raises the tracks and lowers theroad at E. 25th Avenue it also completes east/west grade street separations at 28th and 31st Avenues, which currently dead-end — opening access between areas east and west of the tracks.

As part of the project, in May PG&E began work to relocated a natural gas pipeline for the 25th Ave. grade separation project. The work is being done on South Delaware Street between 25th Avenue and Pacific Boulevard from 7:30 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

During this time, motorists may experience minor delays during work hours due to lane closures on South Delaware Street from 25th Avenue to Derby Avenue. This work is anticipated to be complete by late September. All businesses will remain open as usual during construction.
