San Bernardo gets a touch-up

In July, Border Town Blues told us about a Laredo Morning Times story by Joe Rutland. I would link you to the LMT story but… you know how that goes. The story was about fixing up San Bernardo.

Soooo… is this the beginning of fixing up San Bernardo?

It is probably NOT but at least the ends of each sidewalk are now ADA complaint with ramps. I had taken these pictures in the late morning and when I passed by again in the evening, all the sidewalks had new ramps. It’s a start 🙂

    ADA compliant sidewalks a good start. Next: trash, the telephone poles that impede said ADA compliant sidewalks, the ugly billboards, and the potholes. Street walker removal is optional.

    Well, it’s a start. I recognize nothing in the pictures but then, I’ve been away from Laredo for many, many years…..Sylvia

      Hmmm… I am surprised. I thought San Bernardo had been one of the streets that changed the least. Although, I think in the last picture, that building where the church is now used to be Sal’s Pizza. The rest I think is still the same for at least the last 14 years.
