“Riverside Avenue in Marinette was recently closed for what a nearby resident said was the whole summer. It apparently got little mention in our local newspaper. With the Hattie Street Bridge closed for six months last summer, along with Riverside Avenue, why in the world wasn’t the work done on it at that time? There were barricades up on Riverside Avenue the entire time last summer stating that the road was closed. Inconveniencing residents, fishermen, tourists etc. two years in a row during the summer is ridiculous. There had to be a way Riverside Avenue, between Hattie Street and Van Cleve Avenue could have been resurfaced last summer while it was technically closed. The surface is in poor condition and certainly needs to be improved, but it was no better last year. These decisions fly in the face of logic and smack of arrogance on the part of city fathers which allow this.”
