Today’s interesting new project sighting was this new section of concrete in front of the Les Halles ice creamery.
To the right and behind the stanchions, a new type of solid, dark brown concrete has been laid right alongside the old gray cobblestone concrete.
The color contrast is stark and was instantly noticeable.
All around the area with the new concrete we noticed scoring throughout the old gray cobblestones. This seems to indicate that more concrete will be ripped out and replaced with the new brown kind. We’ll lose a little bit more of the authentic France feeling for sure.
