Alley Rebricking to Begin October 5

Park View AlleyYesterday, residents living on the block bordered by Quebec Place, Rock Creek Church Road, Warder Street, and Park Place, were notified that their alley would be reconstructed.

Work will begin on or about October 5, and is expected to last until October 23, 2009. Reconstruction will involve replacing the existing alley with brick on cement concrete base.

This alley, along with the alley on the block to the south, has been an ongoing issue since July. Between July and now there have been two attempts by the City to pave these alleys with asphalt. In both instances, residents who have been adamant that they must be rebricked rather than paved over have halted the work.

Its heartening to see that the persistence of Commissioner Valenti and other Park View residents has paid off.

    hi kent,
    Thank you for your hard work around Park view, do you know how is going to work with the trash pick up?
    see u later on the street.

  2. Kent Says:

    Pascale … to be honest, I’m not sure how the trash will be handled during this period. I know that what is scheduled to happen is very disruptive to an active alley, and there will be periods when vehicles will not be able to use the alley.

    Let me see if I can find out.

    Yes…Thanks for the update.

    By chance, have you received any news about the alley between the 700 blocks of Rock Creek Church Road and Quebec?

  4. Kent Says:

    I’ve just learned form a resident on Quebec that when an alley is rebricked, trash will be collected in front of the house for the 3 weeks or so that the work continues.

    As to the 700 block of RCCR & Quebec, I’ve heard nothing about its current status.
