I read with some interest the article about the need for rebuilding Seward Street and the plans the city proposes. One of the concerns I have is the use of red brick for the street surface. When the city Parks and Recreation Department made the bus parking area at the waterfront downtown they surfaced the parking area with red brick. Now we are unable to use this parking area during the winter months because the snow plows would destroy the brick.
I would hope the same Parks and Recreation engineer isn't on the Seward Street project, as I would hate to see the street shut down during the winter months. Or is this their way of eventually making all streets for walking only?
