Sidewalk extensions getting kicked to the curb on Third

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “We’ll still have 100 percent more sidewalk than we used to,” Schoepflin said. “It seems like a reasonable thing to do.”

Dave Kinney, the director of the department of public works, said that the street will be closed down completely at times, but that his crews will try to keep one side of the street open when possible.

“We’re hoping that we won’t have to shut the whole street at night,” Kinney said. “We’re hoping at worst one side will be shut down.”

Kinney said that his department will reuse and reclaim as much of the brick and curb materials from the job as they can.

“The hardest part of the whole thing is taking out the curb,” he said.

The street scape work was performed by private contractors, and not the city, which could cause issues for city workers, Kinney said.

“We’re hoping we don’t run into any surprises,” he said.

Big Red Number $30K City's cost to remove sidewalk extensions on Third Street. The project will take six weeks.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
