Northpoint Boulevard Needs To Be Repaved - And Response

Monday, June 24, 2013

Just wondering why Northpoint Boulevard has not been re-paved. The holes are so bad you think you going on an obstacle course.  

Also, when is Dayton Boulevard going to be re-paved?   It's getting really bad.  

Also, there is trash all over the town, what is going on. Just wondering.

I agree.  Northpoint Boulevard is a horrible road.  I, myself, reported it to 311 many times and even emailed everyone I could on the chattanooga.gov website.  The one reply I did get was a load of junk from 311 about how they would be looking at roads in 2014 that would need to be paved but there was no plans to pave Northpoint.   

Maybe when one of those potholes swallows a car, someone will do something about it.  After complaining for months, I finally was able to get my street's potholes filled, only to have it worse than it was for three-four days, then someone finally came out to fix it and smooth it out.   

I don/'t know who is in charge of this but its pretty ridiculous and something needs to be done about it.

The Self-Righteous Mayfield

Scottie, Weston was right to be concerned with your duplicity. Playing with your grandchild when he came uninvited? Okay a little self serving. By the way, did your son let the air out of Weston's car tires? Cat Martinez East Ridge (click for more)
