It was apparently a "snow day" for the S-Curve contractors also. The view above shows the location of the future connection of 19th Street with the relocated S-Curve which will have stop lights and turn lanes.
School was out Monday after about an inch of snow overnight. There were plenty of sled trails in the park by mid-afternoon when these photos were taken but just a sleder was still there (above). Some of the trails below are from sleds and the rest are the path of large snowballs with at least two large snowman remains left there Feb. 13th, 2012.

The north two lanes of the future 4-lane Main Street are getting closer to opening to traffic from the north soon. The south two lanes would then be closed off and brought up to the new height. This view at 16th and Main shows the new brick / asphalt interface.
This may hopefully be one of the last times we have to see a giant puddle next to the wall of the old S-Curve path ... evenafter just a little snow and melting off the roadway. These lanes are now only used for local non-thru traffic.
This view near 15th Street shows about a 2 foot height difference between the new and old pavement levels.
