City, newspaper combine to miscommunicate.

There are problems with announcements of this nature.

Grant Line to close!

First, seeing as Grant Line Road runs quite some distance, is a consideration of what the newspaper leaves unsaid: Which part of Grant Line Road is being closed? Important, don't you think?

Second, having read a bit further (which vast numbers of folks won't do) and knowing that the road closure will not impede business access in the College Park Brewing Corridor, wouldn't it be nice to receive advance notice from the city and not the newspaper?

Third, after reassuring those customers who've heard only that Grant Line Road will be closed, and not when, or whether the closure will affect Gravity Head access (remember that time when the rat bastards at the water company utility monopoly screwed us out of ten grand on a Gravity Head Friday night?), maybe we can pitch in for a sympathy card for the businesses located at the corner of Grant Line and Daisy.

Wouldn't you just love to hear about these things from the city, first, and not last?

Grant Line to close for New Albany stormwater project; Also: MAC awarded contract for Main Street work, by Daniel Suddeath (News and Tribune)

NEW ALBANY — A portion of Grant Line Road could close for up to 60 days for drainage upgrades city officials said are desperately needed to ease flooding in the area.

MAC Construction and Excavating will cut open Grant Line Road just south of the Daisy Lane intersection in order to replace four culverts. City officials said the system hasn’t been upgraded in 60 years, and flooding, especially near the Salvation Army Thrift Shop, has traditionally been a problem in the area.
