Strand Theatre Sidewalk Repair 11/29/10 to 12/2/10


It may seem unusual to feel happiness, excitement and enthusiasm over a crew showing up to "repair a sidewalk."  Every little bit counts, especially if the ugliness has been around for months and it's right in front of the Strand Theatre, a showcase for Upham's Corner.

We recall when the Mayor held a homelessness fund raiser at the Strand.  Several days before that, the activity of the Street Lighting Department was apparent and close at hand.  Every street light had to be perfect before the event occurred.

Now for months a large patch of asphalt has graced the facade of the Strand, as if it were a dark shadow from a spotlight,shouting out the question:  Does anybody care?
Of course, such thoughts have nothing necessarily to do with reality.  The fact is that NStar had dug up the sidewalk months ago for gas work and had left the patch of asphalt there waiting for something.  Finally on 11/29/10 the crew arrived, this time, Riley Brothers.  Thus far we have seen high quality work from D'Allesandro, Aggregate Industries and now Riley.  Brick work is time-consuming because even one brick out of place will create a trip hazard.

Riley Brothers did a terrific job as you will see from the photos.
