Take a stroll down Georgia Street and it's easy to wonder what happened? The wooden boardwalk is discolored. There are bollards scuffed and even knocked over by cars. And some of the stone pavers are lose.
"Well there's a lot of stuff gone wrong with it," said Jason Hornberger the manager at Kilroys. "It is surprising."
It's surprising to Hornberger, because Georgia Street - a $12.5 million project - is only a few months old.
"Well it was great when they first opened it up," added Hornberger. "Now it's kind of gone downhill.
"A little of it we expected to see, some of its a little premature," explained Julia Watson of Indianapolis Downtown Inc.
Indianapolis Downtown, Inc. Is the group leading maintenance and repairs that started this month.
"We need to go back in and take that finish off of there and re-finish it in better weather conditions,” said Watson. “It was done late winter, very cold, not ideal conditions for applying a finish coat of that nature."
Watson says a lot of the wear and tear is from the super bowl traffic. The rest, even if pre-mature, was expected.
"There is settling that's going to occur and when that settling occurs, you just have to go back in with a punch list and take care of it."
Some businesses on Georgia Street wonder if it's more than that? Was the project rushed ahead of the Super Bowl? Watson didn't have a clear answer. But she stands behind the work.
"Whether it was rushed or not, we had to be ready and that street had to be ready," said Watson. "Everybody worked very, very hard to make sure that we did the best we could."
All of the work is expected to be complete by June.
