What’s all of that construction work at Dickinson Square Park?

You might have noticed a large section of the sidewalk and street on the corner of 4th and Tasker streets under construction. You can thank the Water Department. (Update: Maybe the time of this post was too negative at first. You “should” thank the department.)
