    Default pictures of santiago sidewalk construction.

    More update on santiago downtown sidewalk renovation. Actually its not a renovation at all. The sidewalk had been renovated about 6 months ago, now the city plans on taking all the electrical, cable TV and telecommunication/ internet cables underground. There is a disaster in downtown santiago and traffic jams are bring the city to a halt. Businesses are suffering due to the fact, customers can't get in or out of businesses. Here are some pictures from my cell phone.

    This new business had some fancy marble tiles installed in the front of his store on the side walk to make the entrance more attractive to people.





    this is the new side walk design.


    El encanto, the entrance / exit closed due to wet cement.




    main circuit box, which is burried in the ground.


    Entrance to banreserva (calle san luis)


    many streets are closed.




    So be careful. If you don't have to come to downtown santiago, then postpone your trip.

    LOL You have to admit, the guy on the jackhammer in the last pic was pretty inventive concerning his new sunshade for his hat!

    You think that is bad? Take a look at Calle Durate in Santo Domingo. This street has been this way for at least a year. Calle Durate is the shopping area for locals.

    Bigbird, those photos are outdated. Calle Duarte doesn't look like that anymore.

    Sidewalks are done, streets are paved with new stone, trees have been planted, etc. Actually, right now it looks really nice.

    The Chinatown is suppose to be inaugurated in December so they must be putting the final touches right now.

    Enough about Santo Domingo, lets focus on Santiago.

    Hopefully AZB will keep us updated on the beautification of downtown Santiago with photos and all.
