One little picture…

May 18, 2011

There has been a lot of work going on around Centro, without a lot of fanfare. We noticed these new street lights going up here and there on the blocks where the undergrounding of utilities has already been completed. The historic street lights in Centro are mostly the kind that are attached to buildings, so this is something new.

This picture also shows the new sidewalk surfaces they are installing. I’m not sure how the streets that get the brick pavers are chosen, but they look great.

You can also see that the City of Mazatlán likes their street trees shaped into a square or rectangle… usually trimmed entirely by machete, if you can believe it!

    1. I saw that they were doing a lot of sidewalk work when we were there in March. It looks really nice, and the streetlights are beautiful-they fit right in.

    1. Now THESE trees are unusual, in that they don’t grow in the MIDDLE of the sidewalk! So many do and it does make one scratch the cabeza. No wonder J and I find ourselves just giving up and walking in the street, but without complaint; it’s level, no potholes and no trees in the middle.

    1. One little picture and so many stories. First thing I noticed was the level sidewalk, not sure how I feel about the lights, they almost look modern!!
