Do we really only have two weeks (seven Promenade days) left on the clock before this stretch reverts?

"Preliminary programming for the Pilot, as identified on the related 2012 capital budget submission sheet, indicated opening and closing of the South leg of King Street East twice per day, three days a week, for four weeks.

To reduce operating costs and respond to requests from the Downtown BIA and Culture staff, this has been revised to a one-time closure in June/July through August, with re-opening of the street at the end of August. Closure will be for one block between James and Hughson Streets. Specific dates are to be determined in coordination with Culture and the Downtown BIA.

A one-time closure and re-opening is a better trial-run for the pedestrian space envisioned in the preferred conceptual plan presented to Public Works Committee on January 18, 2010, as it will include day, evening, weekdays, and weekends."
