Can someone clean the Hayes Avenue underpass sidewalks?
The Register alerted city officials about the mud problem at the Hayes Avenue underpass, located by North Depot Street, around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Two hours later, new city engineer Aaron Klein responded and seemingly helped fully address the issue.
"I just spoke with the superintendent of the street division," Klein said. "He said that he would get over there to take care of it."
With several other projects on Sandusky's radar, it'll be unlikely this area will be fully clear of mud 100 percent of the time. But at least now city officials realize this area does have a mud problem.
Klein provided an explanation as to how the mud problem started:
"There is a gap between the bottom of the railroad track base and the top of concrete from our project, which was also the top of the allowable project limits because it was on railroad property," he said. "We are looking into our options and discussing how to handle this because of the logistics of dealing with the railroad tracks. Due to the various entities involved, this may take awhile to handle. We'll maintain it to the best of our ability in the meantime."
