Historic City News local news reporters visited City Archaeologist Carl Halbirt and his crew during their recent exploration in the Plaza de la Constitución which was known to attract a crowd of curious onlookers.
In this week’s communication published by the Department of Public Affairs of the City of St. Augustine, we learned that the Plaza project has been cut short to allow Halbirt to shift attention to the first block of Aviles Street.
The city will be lifting and resetting the brick surface along Aviles Street; replacing utilities and extending the west sidewalk over existing parking spaces.
The much anticipated redesign has been approved by the City and will provide space for outside dining tables.
Halbirt and the city archaeologist’s team, wants to stay ahead of the redesign project.
