Q. I live on South Cardinal Drive. The road has been under construction for new pipes for over a 6 weeks. The road is now all potholes and a muddy mess, way over the promised completion time. When is it going to be done? Are the paying for alignments on everyone’s cars? Are they fixing the broken cement driveways they have cracked, and chipped the ends off of? Who is doing the work/who hired then?
A. The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority has a project affecting South Cardinal Drive in Wilmington.
CFPUA’s contractor, T.A. Loving, has been working on South Cardinal since mid-June, said Mike McGill, a CFPUA spokesman.
“Due to inclement weather, they are currently one week over the six-week completion mark,” McGill wrote in an Aug. 7, 2014 email.
“Paving was slated to begin this week but the heavy rains of the last few days have prevented the work from starting,” he wrote. “Cracked or chipped driveway aprons will be cut back and poured once the asphalt is in. TA Loving will continue maintenance on the ABC stone base side of S. Cardinal until the road is completely paved. If anyone has concerns or questions, they can contact T.A. Loving at 919-734-8400. Please make reference to the CFPUA Northeast Interceptor project at S. Cardinal Drive.”
