12 - Hinton News Tues. Oct. 21, 2003 From page 1 Comment This and That asphalt on all of Summers St. and up 2nd Ave. to Temple St. has been removed. This is a project of the State's Division of Highways and funded totally by state dollars. Actually the pavement on Temple St. is in worse shape than Summers St., but we understand it is scheduled for the same treatment in the next year or so. Once the work is finished on Summers St. it will be a nice improvement and we hope it isn't much longer. While this is taking place the state is also making city sidewalks handicapped accessible along the route. About 20 street corner sidewalks have been broken out to make the sidewalk level with the street. This also includes a bricked section that has bricks with knobs on them so the seeing impaired will feel the difference and know they have come to an intersection and be cautious of traffic.
