Are the temporary concrete barriers in Public Square actually temporary?

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Clevelanders have jokingly called the beautiful remodeled Public Square the city's reward for hosting the Republican National Convention. But the beauty has been cut in half by temporary concrete barriers.

The barriers were put in place after the battle between the city and RTA ended with the city reopening public square to buses.

Temporary, so far, has been nearly four months.

A city spokesman -- who did not want to go on camera -- said that the barriers are temporary and there's a long-term plan to replace them with something that looks better. They said there's no ballpark time frame, however.
