It was renovated about 25 years ago. That's when the divider walls were added. What prompted the renovation was a sidewalk incident wherein a jogger on the sidewalk fell through to his armpits when one concrete section gave way beneath him. You're not wrong to be concerned.

I found a 10mm socket by the side of the road today. 10mm sockets just disappear and reappear.
