City officials say that’s because some construction materials were hard to get during the pandemic. Crews also had to deal with some decaying water mains in the area.
“There was quite a delay early on,” said Susan Broker, Savannah’s director for Special Events Film and Tourism. "And so now we are playing a little catch-up, but we are on point.”
Crews have been paving the street near Hyunh’s nail salon. City officials say once that block is finished, workers will head east to start on the next section of road. Five more blocks of Broughton Street remain to be done.
