Editorial: Road work can't come soon enough
A water leak this past week on Main Avenue in Park Rapids perfectly illustrates the need to replace the failing infrastructure.
The leak started Saturday morning and was pooling up just underneath the sidewalk in front of RiverBend Home Expressions.
It was inevitable something like this happened.
The pipes beneath the street are close to 80 years old and are rusting through and collapsing. Fortunately, it was a minor leak - we know it could have been much worse.
