Toilet Watch: Three More Weeks, APT Still Not Open

I'd really been holding off on declaring this Toilet Watch, but I think at this point it's inevitable. By my calculations the Automated Public Toilet at Pershing Square has now been in the ground for twenty two weeks and has never yet been in service. That's simply amazing to me.

I first heard of a Pershing Square APT sighting at the October meeting of DLANC's Transportation & Public Works committee. That meeting was held on October 23rd, 2006. Five months have now passed, and from the public's view nothing has changed.

Certainly lots has happened, though. They've torn up and resealed the concrete around the APT at least three times, most recently a week or so ago. They've also installed three toilets elsewhere Downtown, though none of those are yet active either.

I almost feel like I need one of those tacky little counters in the sidebar:

Toilet Watch: 3,696 hours and counting

For a nice little laugh, also check out the Downtown News article from December that said the toilets would be opening later in the month.
