Just a few weeks ago the city put new asphalt down along Sixth Street. Recently they have done something to the manhole covers and are tearing up the asphalt again for another project. Why don’t they do all the work at the same time so they don’t have to tear up the asphalt again?
Contractors for the city have been working to adjust the manhole covers to ensure they are at-grade with the new asphalt overlay, according to Megan Gilliland, communications coordinator for the city. As part of the process, the asphalt must be laid and then cure for a short time before it can be replaced, just around the manhole covers, with concrete. It is not part of another project; just steps in a process to complete the existing project.
