FULL PARADISE WAITING ON WARMER WEATHER: Drivers in the northwest quadrant might have noticed that the orange barrels are missing from Paradise Boulevard between Golf Course and Eagle Ranch.
But the old asphalt is not.
Johnny Chandler, who handles info for the city Department of Municipal Development, says that “the orange barrels are gone and the majority of the project is completed.” He has explained in this column before that taxpayers’ $3 million paid for “two lanes in each direction, a multiuse trail on the south side of the roadway and a continuous sidewalk on the north side of the Paradise. We will also rehabilitate the existing roadway, add traffic signage, street lighting as well as storm drain modifications and traffic signal modifications.”
However, “the re-paving will be done this spring/summer as part of DMD’s road rehabilitation/paving program. The temperature for this to happen needs to be 55 degrees and rising.”
