Southern Pines street paving delayed until March
It looks like commercial activity on Broad Street in Southern Pines will not be interrupted by the state department of transportation right away. The contractor, S-T Wooten, says paving won’t begin until after March 15th, the slack season. Broad Street is one of four streets destined for repaving under a million dollar contract. Reade Dawson is Wooten’s General Manager. He assured Downtown Merchants this week that his firm never had any intention of interfering with business on Broad Street. Dawson proposed that if the D-O-T doesn’t object, Broad Street will be the last of the four paving projects ot be undertaken.
