PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Dilworth Plaza is expected to reopen September 4th after major renovations to the area on the west side of City Hall. Officials are due to give an update on the project Tuesday morning.
Dilworth Plaza will reopen as Dilworth Park once the $55 million renovation – which began in the winter of 2012 – is completed next month.
“It’s the center of Philadelphia, for God’s sake,” says passerby Matt.
Matt is curious, since the barriers surrounding the Dilworth construction site blocking East-West access seem to have been there forever.
“Construction on the highway never gets done on time,” Matt says. “When have you ever seen construction get done on time?”
Reporter: “They originally said it would be completed by the spring of 2014.”
“Yeah, exactly, but I do think it’ll be nice when it is done,” Matt says.
Others agree that the new green park flanking City Hall will be a center stage for all of Philadelphia:
“I think it puts a beautiful face on City Hall, which is already an impeccably beautiful building,” says this passerby.
