Nope, just double-checked with the City and it's a 2012 project. Scheduled to start in 'late spring' and wrap up in fall. Also on the construction map the City is getting ready to put out is the Francis Ave. from Freya to Havana project, so Francis is going to be one street you want to avoid this summer. That's your area though Charles, so could be a challenge for you.

OK I guess I will use Addison to get to Fred Meyers then.
