LETTER: Construction work on Melrick Place frustrating


What kind of Mickey Mouse operation occurs during construction on Melrick Place? The project has been ongoing for more than a year. When they are not blasting, drilling, or digging up the ground, they are trying to control dust with the noisest roller I have ever heard.

Is there no oversight with this operation? Is there no completion date?

Today I had the pleasure of waking up to a sound that, at first, I thought was a Coast Guard helicopter flying over, but I soon determined that the house-penetrating noise was from the construction site.

I sometimes see a cluster of men when I walk by, but often, not much is happening. How long do the residents have to put up with this?

I’m no construction/building/planning expert, but I know that if you dig out with what seems like one shovel full at a time, it ain’t going to get done!

Too bad that when my young grandchildren came out to visit, I didn’t get them to help with the project as they had their shovels and buckets. At least something would have gotten done.

Finish the job for the sake of the neighbourhood.
