Good News/Bad News with Bangor Mall Paving Project
You've probably heard that there is some paving going on at Bangor Mall. But there is more to the story.
The good news is that they are doing anything with the Bangor Mall parking lot and the road that circles the mall. Anything has to be an improvement over what is there now. Anyone who has driven around the mall in the past few years has to agree, some of the roughest, more beat-up pavement in the history of pavement. So hats off to any improvement.
You don't have to look far to find spots like this.
Now the bad news. They are not doing all of the road or all of the parking lot. Just what they have determined to be in the worst shape. Again, not speaking out of school, but that is some awful pavement. Whoever has to judge and decide what gets repaired and what gets repaved and what just stays the same has a tough gig.
Back to the good news. Good to see crews out there yesterday working away and fixing up the worst areas. Work is expected to continue today.
FYI, the road and lots at Bangor Mall are not owned by the City of Bangor, but by Namdar Realty Group.
Thank you for what you are doing. Wish you could do more.
