Letter: On Main St., thinking ahead
The Concord City Council has approved the Main Street redesign project. I suggest that the city should now send its street-painting crew out to repaint Main Street lines to create the wider driving lanes, median, wider sidewalks and the parking spaces that will exist after the project is complete. After a few weeks of experience with this faux painted setup, any unexpected problems should show up and perhaps lead to minor modifications.
It would be a shame to wait until after all of the heavy civil engineering work is done to say, “Gee, we didn’t foresee that problem.”
