A Cordova subdivision will soon see new improvements made to a street left unpaved.
Earlier this week Local 24 spoke with residents living in the Carrollwood Lakes Cordova area after reports the streets were torn up for more than a month.
The road was stripped and only half of it was repaved.
Memphis’ Public Works Director said it was because the only working paving machine broke.
A brand new paver arrived but work was delayed because employees needed to be trained.
Homeowners were relieved Saturday to see crews finishing what they started weeks ago.
“I’m happy as clam. I mean, you should have seen what they done. I mean, the manhole covers were sitting up this much higher than the pavement. You hit those things, you were like ‘Bam!’ I had this big truck that I was driving, and it was kind of a pain. But you guys did the job. I appreciate it. We all appreciate it! I bet if you ask anybody in the hood, they all appreciate it,” said Robert Way who lives in the area.
In the Walnut Grove Lake neighborhood streets were stripped weeks ago, but the paving never happened.
Memphis Public Works said new pavement should be laid there soon.
