They would complain if.they didn't get handicap sloped access at the cross walks. Can't have it both ways on a limited budget.

I and most of the residents were pissed off too when the city tore up the limestone slab sidewalks in my former hometown. Progress doesn't let history get in its way.

I was pointing out the usual public complaints. Personally I l don't see the need for all these handicap corners.

Yep, I understand what you mean. The city could do a curb cut for the complainers, though.

If it is the law it has to be done.

If it has to be done it has to be overdone.

One corner left undone would attract whiners, squeaky wheels, the easily offended, the ACLU, ambulance chasers and eventually the government.

In most cases what was done is not correct and has to be redone too.

and the funny thing is that they're tearing out materials that have a 100 plus your life span in favor of concrete which has a 30 to 50 year life span at best

Just started crushing some concrete that was poured in 1909 harder than any of the stuff I got from any street / road / bridge I have run through

P.S. Kosmick I need stone dor well sites so instead of paying for limestone or crushed gravel I buy a crusher and screener to recycle concrete and bricks. Construction sites are always trying to find a place to dump that when it has mostly brick or mixed items. Since I don't need it to pass ODOT or a city spec I can take it free and still save money. A win for me.
