“The layout of the brick was not according to the original plan for that corner,” Milam said of the Streetscape project. “We just wanted to get it back to the way it was
originally. They deviated from the original design and layout.”
Milam said that the brickwork in the sidewalks that are being repaired is supposed to look just like it was before the project started.
“It was one of those things that most people wouldn’t have noticed, but I did,” Milam said. “It’s wasn’t a crisis, but it was a question of design.”
Milam said that city street department personnel actually provided Spriggs crews with drawings, but whoever did it the first go-round apparently was not looking at the drawings.
“It was just an oversight. We’re not upset with them. They’re not upset with us. It was just something that had to be corrected,” Milam said. “It’s not going to cost us any more money.”
Work on the 200 block of Broad Street is almost complete. Crews will move to the 300 block next.
