Recently the Department of Transportation ripped up the top layer asphalt on Channel Avenue below Dictum Ct. (http://g.co/maps/9gs8p) it seemed odd as ALL of channel was marked for street repair. That was a few weeks ago and now there is a rumor floating around that DOT made a mistake. The story is that when the DOT was asked by residents, workers and (possibly) a supervisor had told them they had made a mistake. That they were supposed to do the “C” court (Celeste) not the “C” (Channel) avenue. They elaborated adding that there is no money to have this repaired quickly and left.
We reached out to DOT for comment specifically asking about this project and the possibility of a mistake. Although a mistake was not specifically denied it was addressed: “DOT is milling and resurfacing Channel Avenue from Celeste Court past Ebony Court, which is the project that was scheduled. It is not uncommon to repave specific sections of a roadway. The repaving part of the project is scheduled for next week.”
I only mention the rumor, because it is entirely possible for a mistake to happen, the more information about an issue that is out there the better. If there is any truth to the mistake rumor we may never find out.
