South Street Project Slowed

By Harold Wessell

MECHANICVILLE, Oct. 10 – The South Street Hill road project had become about ten days behind schedule at the time of last week's City Council meeting.

Accounts Commissioner Mark Seber, talking later with the Express said he had attended a construction meeting earlier the day of the meeting; and was told that the project was, overall,  going well but has lost some time because the wall work itself is not moving at the expected pace. Mayor Anthony Sylvester said a reason for project delays was that some of the stones were late getting in. "They were hoping do a hundred stones a day, but only been able to do about 70-80 a day. It’s a lot more work. The stones are heavier, but they've been moving them up."
