I walk that area of downtown regularly and have noticed many tourists and locals alike struggle with the high curbs on that section of sidewalk that is part of the Downtown Walking Tour Route. Those in a wheelchair or pushing a stroller are instead forced to either roll in the street, or walk the sidewalk on the opposite side of the street which is very narrow and abruptly ends at the hill to Cape Fox. The really brave attempt to navigate Harris Street around the creek, circumventing broken down vehicles and potholes that can swallow dump trucks.
I am hopeful that "the powers that be" can make this improvement happen in a timely manner.
