The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].
I would like to request meaningful information about when the road diversion due to construction/asphalting in the vicinity of E County Line Road/Brook Road is expected to end and the road surface to be restored.
I drive there every day on my way to work, and due to the extremely bad road surface, my car is exposed to heavy wear, and all drivers have to slow down because of the lane pulling, which also hinders the normal flow of traffic.
Paving machines used to be parked along the road, but now they have also disappeared, it seems that the company responsible for the road is not really preparing to finish the work in the near future.
Please hurry up the works, this situation has existed for almost two months now!
Response from Mayor Coles:
Good morning. We actually discussed this with the county engineer at a meeting last Friday. This is a county project. Due to shortage of certain supplies, the rising cost of oil, which directly impacts the cost of asphalt and other increases with their contractors, the cost of the project increased beyond the amount they are allowed to approve without getting the County Commissioners to vote on an new maximum.
They are supposed to do this at their next meeting and hopefully complete the project soon thereafter.
