Rough road ahead for Newton leaders

July 9, 2012

Newton leaders will explore a bumpy road when they meet for the city council's regular monthly meeting Tuesday night.

Specifcially, they are planning focus on East 26th Street, which Council member Tom Rowe has called the "one of the worst roads in Newton."

"It is in such terrible condition. I ride down it real slow and look at all the cracks and spider webs and the edges are coming off. Down near the end it is just washing away," Rowe told The O-N-E last month. "If we don't do something about it down at the end it is completely going to leave some day."
