This arch over Felix Street and the gold lettering on each column marked the completion of the aesthetic portion of the Downtown gates project. Work to make the retractable gates more user-friendly is the next step.

This week, gold lettering was added to the black columns that hide the retractable gates and a large archway was constructed over Felix Street at Eighth Street.

The bar’s owner, City Council Member Brian Myers, also has voiced disapproval of the project.
