Heat Leads To Sidewalk, Street Buckling In Mexico

The recent high temperatures have affected a downtown Mexico sidewalk and a Mexico street. Mexico Public Works Director Kensey Russell says earlier this week, the heat caused the sidewalk at the corner of Jackson and Washington Streets to buckle. He says crews will work on pulling out the bricks above the buckle and repair it soon. Russell says a street in west mexico had a bit of heat-related damage as well recently. He says Morris Street, near Buchanan, did buckle a bit as well. Russell says city crews used the city’s milling machine to smooth out the rough spot there. He says if residents notice any buckling in sidewalks or streets, feel free to call city hall. That number is 581-2100 and ask for the Public Works Department.
