The city announced Wednesday that it has ordered work stopped on the repaving and treatment of Linden Street.
“Our Public Works team has discovered an installation issue with stamping the pattern onto the street,” said city spokeswoman Rhonda Everdyke. “The current work has been stopped and the contractor will remedy the issues to ensure that the original design and bid requirements are met. There is no anticipated additional cost to the city.”
The proposed design of the street consists of a paved asphalt base with a patterned overlay that is more durable than the previously installed stamped asphalt. The design is intended to be reminiscent of a brick pattern, although it has been decades since the driving surface of the street has been treated with brick, said Everdyke.
