The Castro is now undergoing the process of widening the sidewalks of a 2-block stretch from Market Street to 19th Street. Some say it will cause traffic congestion. Others say it is badly needed to allow more pedestrians to move more freely about. Another aspect is the take on the business owners, some of whom are concerned that the torn up walkways will deter business. Time will tell as we move into the Spring and summer months in this busy metropolis we call the Castro!
