So I know the Spring Street construction projects have been discussed at length here on Ephblog, but it really sunk in for me when I walked down to Tunnel City for coffee last Saturday. Construction/demolition has started (including a gaping hole where Subway/Purple Pub used to be), and notices have been posted on a few storefronts warning of further changes. It’s a little unnerving to think that by the time I graduate, Spring Street could have a totally different feel than when I first got here. So today I went out with my (low-quality, sorry!) camera and documented a few of these changes for those who aren’t able to see for themselves.
