Construction crews tear up asphalt for streetcar construction on East Broadway between Scott and Arizona avenues. Project manager Jesse Gutierrez, whose last day on the job is today, said Tuesday that he expects construction on Broadway to go "exceptionally fast."
The closure of East University Boulevard and North Fourth Avenue for streetcar construction has adversely affected business for the Epic Cafe, as well as many other small businesses along North Fourth Avenue and Congress Street.
Steven Flanagan, a regular at Epic Cafe, says the streetcar construction won't stop him from coming to the cafe. Epic Cafe owner Brian Wolff says the city's change of plans that extended construction almost cost him his business.
