repaving of University Avenue, Segoe to Shorewood

Postby rabble » Mon Mar 28, 2011 10:34 am

Just in case anybody missed it. We gotta do it again.

Motorists who wailed last year as construction tore up University Avenue between South Segoe Road and Shorewood Boulevard will suffer another two or three weeks this spring as contractors repave that section of the roadway.

Yoeger said he expects the contractors to negotiate a solution, but the contractors probably won't be responsible for the city's extra costs. "There is a cost for the delay and detouring of traffic that takes place," he said. "We will keep the street open again, maintaining with traffic control similar to last year."

I think that means the contractors get paid for repaving the pavement they screwed up.

Actually, I think they repave it without payment. However, they are not held responsible for the additional costs associated with detouring traffic, etc.

Man, this blows. I seem to recall a Foron or two expressing concern about how late in the season they were doing the paving last November. Whoever it was, you were right.
