Construction is under way on Market Square, transforming the space from a 70’s-era eyesore to a modern, hip urban town center. As part of this process, the sidewalks are being torn up to be replaced with what turns out to be airport-style moving sidewalks. The sidewalks will be designed to get the large number of expected visitors from one end of the mall to the other in the shortest amount of time, making sure that they have an opportunity to get a good overview of the shops and restaurants if they so choose. These giant people conveyor belts will have plenty of exits so people can just step off to the side if they see something they like. Each exit will be padded in a fluffy manner in case a passenger has trouble exiting and needs a place to land. The sidewalks should be finished just in time for the area’s hot and muggy season to begin.
