  • How about NW 34th Street, between 16th and 39th Avenues?
    The construction barrels and uneven road surfaces remain, many months after the last construction worker was seen trying to do their job, and finish fixing this road up…
    What in the world is keeping them from finishing this job? Pedestrians and cyclists are told that the sidewalk is closed. Construction barrels create a chaotic environment on a very busy through street That is already much too narrow for the volume of traffic that it sees every day. Lanes are uneven… This has gone on for many months…

      • Jennifer, I saw it listed there. Thanks. Just couldn’t get a straight answer when I called them about what is taking them so long- why they stopped working on it and left all the barrels and sawhorses up.

  • What about NW 53rd Avenue from NW 43rd St going all the way east to Waldo Road.
    The grooves in the pavement have been reported for over 7 years. Many calls but no replies.
