Seventh Avenue's Suspended Works

Pedestrians walk around a pit on a stretch of Carrera Septima sidewalk beside the San Francisco Church.
Nobody at work here!
Be cautious if you take a walk on Carrera Septima north of Jimenez Ave. these days. The stretch was supposed to be pedestrianized - but the company carrying out the project went bankrupt, and the city has not found anyone willing to continue with the work, which was supposed to have been completed years ago.

Not only pedestrians and cyclists, but also the avenue's many merchants are complaining about the situation, and bracing for a difficult Christmas season.

This is the same city, remember, which promises to complete a metro line on schedule and within the budget. L.O.L.
