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].


Good morning.

I was wondering why the Washington sidewalk project was put on hold in middle of the job. They were doing such a fantastic job, really making headway, when they suddenly stopped 2-3 weeks ago. Are they planning on finishing up soon? Do you know what caused the delay?
Thank you very much,

A Washington area resident

Response from Mayor Coles:

Good morning

Yes, the job will be finished shortly. Due to the traffic issue created by the work, we felt it best to hold off completion for a few weeks, when many folks will be away & we can complete the job with less impact on daily commutes.
