Both excavators have been busy Tuesday at the Crowne Plaza parking lot/One South Halsted construction site.
If you didn’t think they were serious about moving your car out of the Crowne Plaza parking lot, it’s too late now.
Asphalt continues getting torn up at the future One South Halsted, even in Tuesday’s rain and fog. One interesting change, aside from the digging: the sidewalk protection on Halsted Street has been removed. It remains on the Madison Street (north) side.
Halsted Street sidewalk protection, gone.
It remains in place on Madison.

UPDATE: A mini-excavator — with jack hammer — showed up for work just after lunchtime.
