Exposed bricks repaved on West Main


Hillsboro city workers on Monday morning were repaving a section of street in the uptown area on West Main Street where the pavement had been removed to expose the brick underneath. Mayor Drew Hastings had suggested that the street be returned to its old-fashioned brick, but after the section was uncovered, Hastings said the brick was not in the condition he had hoped and that public feedback was mostly negative to the idea. Public works lead Shawn Adkins said the city had already planned a grinding project on the street in preparation for a state paving project, and Monday’s temperatures were sufficient to repave the intersection.
