KID work tore up new road­way

Tri-City Herald - - Opinion -

Way to go Kennewick Ir­ri­ga­tion Dis­trict! An­other en­gi­neer­ing/plan­ning faux pas. Rich­land taxes funded the re­cent up­grade/resur­fac­ing of a por­tion of Englewood Drive, only to have KID a short time later up­grade its ir­ri­ga­tion ser­vices, which re­quired cuts across and re­moval of sec­tions of the new as­phalt road­way. Now the re­cently smooth road­way is a rough, dis­mal assem­bly of as­phalt patches cov­er­ing part of one lane and the dis­sect­ing cuts. What a shame that KID couldn’t/ didn’t co­or­di­nate with Rich­land Pub­lic Works to plan a joint ef­fort to avoid Rich­land wast­ing money to im­prove one of its streets.
