Brick streets add character to city

Send a link to a friend 

To the editor:

The main reason the brick streets are in need of repair is due to past repairs to sewer, water or some other utility that then did not replace the brick, but instead patched the street with concrete or some other type of asphalt.

I believe the city should adopt a policy that makes utilities repair the street to its existing type whenever they have to dig and make repairs to the utilities.

As for the current situation, I would love for the city to replace brick with brick, but it is very unlikely due to the cost.

[to top of second column in this letter]

Brick streets add character to the city of Lincoln. That being said, since brick with brick is highly unlikely, I would recommend complete replacement and no overlay that does not repair the road, only covers the blemishes for a very short period of time.
