East Cary Street Maintenance

17th and E Cary St, Richmond, VA


Posted 46 months ago

Richmond.com is reporting that East Cary Street (including the area near Bottom's Up) is not on the list of roads to be repaved in 2011-12. The roads in this area are in TERRIBLE shape. Some of the potholes are a foot deep and can seriously damage a car.

I think the condition of these roads give visitors a bad impression of the area and I would like to figure out a way to get that road on the city's list.

Good news...sorta. It appears that the city patched some of the largest holes on the street. Now when you hit one you won't lose the front end of your car. The road is still a mess, however. Maybe we can find the city council man/woman for that area and ask them to meet with some of the business owners and residents?

The richmond.com article mentions Sharon North, Public Information Manager for the City of Richmond Department of Public Works. Does anyone know Sharon or someone in the Public Works department? I wonder if there is a way for us to get on their list?
