New School Parking Lots
Years of driving on the thin layer of asphalt coating either side of the Ruston School building have taken their toll. Add to the mix a large construction project a few feet away across the alley and here we are. The town and new owners of The Commencement building negotiated an agreement where The Commencement would repave the school lots in exchange for release from some previous obligations.
Construction equipment showed up Monday morning and started work. It appears the project includes removal of at least some of the old rusted fence. I have asked the Mayor Hopkins to confirm how long until completion and what the plans are for the rest of fencing. No word from him yet. But hopefully a new driving surface will be installed soon.
