New Blacktop on Willow Street

After a couple of weeks of construction, not to mention the DOT Dude and his megaphone at 7AM telling folks to move their cars or risk being towed, Willow Street has a sweet ‘n’ smooth new blacktop.

    …as does Middagh–have new blacktop, that is.

    And, under the heading of how tiny can a news item get without disappearing entirely: a seriously tilting lamppost (are they still called that?) formerly on the SW corner of Hicks and Middagh has been removed, presumably to be replaced.

    This is news? Half the streets in the Heights are being repaved.

    I think that if you want real, substantiated news you’re supposed to read the Brooklyn Paper.

    State Street is also getting repaved (and really needs it might I add). I didn’t want that street to be left out of this important news post.

    Regarding the “DOT Dude and his megaphone at 7AM”, I gotta say, great planning! what a way to work with the public! (/sarcasm).

    The contractors got my car. I live on Montague, so I guess the megaphone was inadequate to grab my attention a I was getting ready for work. Here’s what happened: Parked my car on Willow at 7 p.m. on Sunday (7/20). At the time, there were temporary “No Parking” signs on every tree indicating a parking restriction in effect on 7/17 & 7/18. I read the signs and figured it was A-O-K to park as the date was 7/20. I also figured it was about time those out-of-date signs were removed. Sometime between 7 p.m. and 8 a.m., someone dutifully crossed out the old dates on the signs and wrote “7/21 – 7/22″. It probably was the guy with the bull horn or the guy driving the tow truck.
