Safco Construction says don't freak out yet about concrete coloring on sections of sidewalk that didn’t set properly during last summer’s construction of the Mid-Town area.
The weather at the time the stain was applied was cool and wet, causing the stain to not take. It has since peeled off, leaving patches of gray concrete where bright color should be.
Safco says they'll fix the problem along Fourth Street north of Roosevelt Avenue though, so don't get too excited about your tax dollars being misused. They're having the same problem this year though, with rain and cool weather, so it's not clear yet when the work can be performed.
