Today we have an updated look at the work taking place on Main Street U.S.A. outside City Hall at the Magic Kingdom.

As with the other work already completed, some of the curbs are being removed and large sections of concrete replaced. This phase of the project should be completed by the end of March 2014. Click the gallery for more photos.

Oy. Looking at this weeks concrete photos reminds we there were construction walls at this same time of year in 2012 and these magical walls started to reappear in summer of 2013, still here in 2014. Lordie 3 years straight with main street walled. Why not just throw in the hub and moats. Pretty background for a new parade.

Hope they can wrap some of that up by Sunday...

The Sidwalk will be lowered in front of city hall to match evenly with the street.

It's hard to tell from these pictures....are there still curbs in front of City Hall, or has the concrete work sloped the sidewalks directly into the street (like the section in front of the railroad station)? It's my hope that maybe while widening the ramps, they've left most of the curbing in Town Square. The street has been raised to within an inch or two of the curb height. It is too soon to tell if the sidewalk and curb will also be raised. Sidewalk work is still going on in front of City Hall.

I have a feeling all those nice planters around The Crystal Palace will be going away. That area is a nightmare on busy evenings!

It's indeed very depressing. But let's just hope idiots won't run the show for much longer. Anyway here's the 2020 plans I managed to uncover, hopefully I don't get in trouble... 2020, Mine Train still in Test and Adjust

In the earliest days of especially DL, but also WDW, MS DID look like an actual street to many visitors. After all, the MS time period was only a few decades old back then. Many of the older guests had actually known the MS time period, and the younger ones were much closer to MS's time period than we are today. As a funny consequence, when the parks weren't too crowded, often the guests would all walk on the sidewalks, leaving the street empty. A real street in a real town. So adorable! :) MS, early seventies: For the connaisseurs: no strollers, no kids, average age of fifty, all fit and slender, people dressing up instead of dressing down to visit Disney. A more elegant audience for a more sophisticated park.The bench in Town Square brings a nostalgic tear to my eye. I sat on one many, many years ago.

Yeah, those trees looked awesome, shame I couldn't go when I was a kid.

The top picture was taken closer to the castle... Nevermind, it's already been pointed out before I really miss those trees.

Edit: for the connaisseurs: do you note the dimishing of the forced perspective? In the top picture the castle appears much taller than in the bottom one. The top picture was taken closer to the castle... Nevermind, it's already been pointed out before

My apologies to Empress Lilly, and for sounding like a d-bag (which, after reading back this morning, I can see I truly was).Oh, I'm not that thin-skinned! Disney is a subject close to our hearts, and we all get passionate about it! But thank you nonetheless!
