With the plaza complete, Second Street is open for parking and traffic, though it looks a bit like a tamed Wild West until the striping of lanes and parking spaces is finished this week, weather permitting.

Langley Director of Community Planning Jeff Arango said the construction crew needs at least 24 hours of no rain to line the street. Tables and benches for the plaza — a raised, wide crosswalk designed to use visual cues for drivers to pay attention — between Callahan’s Firehouse and the South Whidbey Commons should arrive soon.

“Other than that, the project is complete,” Arango said.
