Ongoing construction of Pacific Plaza near 12th/13th St. and Pacific Avenue has meant the 12th Street hill climb connecting Pac Ave to Commerce has been alternately opened and closed. Today I noticed the hill climb is once again closed, and the wrecking crew has arrived . . .
I understand there used to be an escalator in that big empty maw on the right. One design plan has the hill climb looking like this . . .

|Wow, I guess it's definitely closed now. I sure hope they can stay pretty true to that proposed design. Thanks for the update TDI!|

|I saw this section of moving sidewalk a few years ago and asked someone about it. He explained that it was closed up due to crime and urination. It was separated from the open area by a fence at the time. I didn't realize it was from 1960 - I thought it was from the modernization movement that occurred in the 90s. Wow.|
