Why isn't Truman Road North and Walnut just a 4-way stop sign? With the lane drops a signal seems pretty futile.

Truman Rd North and Baltimore has a sign saying to Yield (to oncoming traffic) on a one way road.

That whole corridor could use a traffic control review.

The 3 continuous blocks of construction going on now gives us a big city feel. Hope 4 Light gets announced soon.

W&R tower crane will probably be down by the time 3 light is up.

A while ago there was some talk about starting Four Light while Three was still under construction. Is that still in play at all?

Is the 3 Light crane up yet? I'm still working from home in Brookside, so haven't been downtown for a while.

Hard to see from this photo but Dunn has started to work on utilities as well as lay conduit for the new building.

Baby crane on site.

There are fancy renderings strong across the project fencing. Might be some new ones.

Foundation and grade works feels like it is going a lot faster than Two Light did.

Probably incorporating what they learned from its construction to expedite 3 lights

Not sure if it’s related to construction but a transformer blew last night. Left the entire block and Two Light without power for a few hours.
