There are no parks in Crossroads or in the River Market that are traversed daily by several different groups of people. Capping the loop would tie this entire community together, lead to a massive increase in walkability and desirability of the entire downtown ecosystem.
I've been told from the decision makers that it will happen, I just wish they'd do it before the predicted 4-years mark. Main reason for waiting is to allow construction of 2,3 and 4 light without causing too much construction congestion. You'd think they could do it in phases. Start on the area to the east of three light as that building opens. As buildings are completed come along behind and finish up the other sections.
Will be such a major change for downtown.
