With a little over two weeks left to wrap up Castro's sidewalks and streets before a hard stop for Pride, construction crews finished laying down new pavement up and down Castro Street between Market Street and 19th. The sidewalks also appear to be nearly completed, however, the sidewalk curb area at the four corners of the intersection at 18th and Castro look of somewhat low quality (see last photo). I emailed Supervisor Scott Wiener and Castro Community Benefit District Executive Director Andrea Aiello to get details on whether they are temporary pours or not. We'll let you know what we find out!
Check out some of the photos folks snapped and shared of the newly paved Castro Street on Twitter

In the photo below you can see that the concrete poured on the corner of 18th and Castro (near Gyro Xpress) is of a different material than the concrete poured on the sidewalks up and down Castro Street appear to be. The tree also appears to be sealed in by concrete!
