Eddy Street Underpass

After the long construction of the Eddy Street Underpass, there is still work that needs to be done. “If you were walking under there, you could look at the concrete on the retaining walls and you’d see cracks and you’d see chips off of it,” Collins noted. “And, some places, you might even see some pieces of metal, which is the rebar that gives it’s strength to the concrete and it would be rusty.”
