Vankleek Hill makeover

new sidewalks in Vankleek Hill

Construction season has officially arrived in Vankleek Hill. This year parts of Main Street, Union and High Streets are having new sidewalks built. A few years ago the contract was given to a firm that built sidewalks with 12- to 14-inch curbs on a street mostly made up of elderly people who don’t skateboard. Maybe the firm honestly thought old people could skateboard, maybe they had the lowest bid and ended up being incompetent, I don’t know, I wasn’t in the room when the tender was handed out. All I know is, if you’re riding your mobility scooter on Stanley Street, you’ll inevitably get stuck in one of the driveway dips. But if you skateboard, Stanley Street has a full mile of awesome rails.
