Street paving postponed

Monday, October 17, 2011

Linda Messmer
A street paving project in Brazil has been put on hold.

According to Brazil Park Board member Linda Messmer, the street paving at Forest Park, scheduled to begin Tuesday, has been postponed.

Messmer said she was informed recently the temperature would be too low for the paving to commence this week.

She added the paving has been rescheduled to take place Monday, Oct. 24, and it is believed it could be finished in one day.

The initial project was set for Tuesday through Thursday. It included three sections of park roads. However, the majority of the park's recreation areas would still be accessible to the public.

Messmer had initially informed The Brazil Times the park entrance off Pinckley Street would be open and residents would have access to the Forest Park Golf Course, walking track, playground and softball fields.

However, the following routes will be temporarily closed Monday, Oct. 24:

* Nabuca Drive to State Road 59 to the comfort station,

* Bonnie Miller Drive from the stop signs by the cabins to Nabuca Drive, and

* Jesse Pitts Drive from Nabuca Drive to the walking track.

As the paving takes place, there will be no access to Roy Brand Stadium.

this was mother nature making the decision not the current administration.

Good call by the administration but am curious as to why wait so late in the year to plan anyway when we know how the weather can change so fast in Indiana. Anyway, nice to see they are trying to get it right and rush into it.

And BTW - The administration made the decision based on Mother Nature's projected actions. We could have very well continued the course and paved it anyway.

(Then again, maybe it WAS Mother Nature on the phone to Ms. Messmer whispering in her ear to postpone the project till the 24th when Mother Nature said the temp's will be higher!! Think she used a cell phone? Wonder what she sounded like?).
