Smooth riding in Rockdale ‘corners’
The longtime resident of that northeast Rockdale street had been waiting decades for a smooth driving surface and now he’s got it.
“They missed us back there in the 70s when they paved the streets in this part of town,” he said.
Richards even brought up the matter before the city council earlier this year.
And he got good news. Metcalf was on the list of streets targeted for paving in summer, 2011.
But not the only one.
Portions of nine streets were paved Wednesday and Thursday by Ramming Paving Co., contractors for this year’s paving project, funded through part of an annual city paving project.
As in recent years, paving targeted never-before hardtopped street sections in the “corners” of Rockdale.
