Concrete, Not Grass

A contracting company from Harrisonburg installed 815 feet of concrete median strip on East Nelson Street today, Thursday, replacing the recently removed grass median.  The work went on in spite of rain, with the newly poured and shaped concrete protected by sheets of plastic.  Equipment included a power curber that directed fresh concrete through a mold.  Final shaping and smoothing was done by workers using hand tools.  During the day-long project, a large volume of traffic was diverted onto Washington and Estill streets.  The concrete was expected to be firmly set within a few hours.  (Kit Huffman photos)
