"I've tripped on this same spot! I don't know why it's not fixed, it's a loose panel," said Anthony Dawson, who works downtown.
"We don't want to trip on things as we're walking through here and it's a sight for sore eyes if it gets too torn up but I think that's natural," said Sean Kelley, who works downtown.
City Engineer Andy Lutz worked on the project and said a certain amount of wear and tear is normal.
"Of course with it being the spotlight of the Super Bowl and having as much traffic as it had, this is maybe a little bit out of the ordinary. We're going through the punch list right now with the contractor on-site and we're moving forward like a typical project," said Lutz.
Construction on the stretch from Capitol to Pennsylvania was under construction right up until Super Bowl visitors arrived. Because of the cold weather, construction crews could not use certain materials.
"There wasn't any grace period, so they got everything in place and in some of the areas where they needed some asphalt setting bed for the pavers, they have to use mortar as a temporary application, just to get it ready for the Super Bowl," said Lutz.
For the next month, Hunt Construction will be on-site putting in permanent fixes to some of the loose concrete and damaged bollards.
Hunt Construction is still under contract with the city to finish the final phase of the project and the materials are currently under warranty. Hunt Construction will finish the rest of the repairs and add landscaping and Roman shades as part of the final phase.
The city handed over the site to Indianapolis Downtown Inc. to manage. Both parties put in $1 million for a maintenance fund expected to last through August 2013.
