Preparing for the gateway pillars

The Arch will be located on Somerset between Bronson and Cambridge. One leg will be by the City parking lot (former Grad's tavern before it burned down) and the other in front of Sushi 88 - Brown Raw Sugar restuarant.

The sidewalks have already been removed in preparation for construction.

A large saw cut in the curb side lane on each side of Somerset marks where the pavement is to be removed. A "bulb out" will be constructed, permanently  narrowing Somerset to two traffic lanes. The bulb out is where the supporting pillars of the Arch will be built, the lions on pedestals installed, and four decorative new style lamps. The pillars are expected to be in place by May 15th.

  1. The coffee shop beside Sushi 88 is called Raw Sugar - it is a fabulous little spot and also has a liquour license (offering Beau's beer, or a shot of liquer in your coffee, plus a few wine options).
