So the work on Secor Road wasn’t totally, totally done after all.
Blade colleague T.K. Barger sent me a what-the-heck email at lunchtime today, asking why the freshly paved, rebuilt street at Secor and Central Avenue already was being cut into.
The response from the city: the cutting was related to adjustment of two manholes for an AT&T telecommunications vault beneath Secor near Central. AT&T had been expected to do that work a few weeks ago, but it (or its contractor) only just got around to it today.
“It's not going to affect the new pavement in that these adjustments were supposed to be cut out as a part of AT&T's work. It is unfortunate in their timing,” said Steve Hamilton, the city’s project liaison.
We’ve also gotten a complaint about the rough condition of westbound Glendale Avenue west of Detroit Avenue following sewer construction there.I was previously told that the city plans to repave the affected lanes once the work is all done, but have requested confirmation today. The results of my inquiry will appear either in this space or in the Road Warrior column on Monday (Sept. 16).
