A problem area

Dear Editor:

Here is another area that needs attention: Seventh Street, between Hopkins and the Marolt bridge, is in terrible shape due to large amounts of construction traffic.

This area is heavily used by bikers and pedestrians and is already narrow. With all the construction vehicles parked there most days and the huge potholes and gravel everywhere, it is amazing that there have been no collisions between the various users of that road or injuries.

Thanks for your consideration. It really needs help!
