Update 6-11-2019City contractor brought in two additional boilers to speed up the curing process. As of this morning, the temperature was hot enough to start the liner chemical reaction that will harden/cure the liner. Smoke may come out of catch basins in the project area, including a block or two to the north and south. This is actually steam and a result of the curing process. The intersection of Waldburg and E. Broad is passable at this time in the east/west directions.
