- O4 Thursday, Sept. 11,2014 - Mason County Journal - Page A-9 Project will also fix storm drainage, dty says By GORDON WEEKS gordon@masoncoun com E /en in a city noted for its broken roads, Shelton's Turner Avenue is no- torious for its cracked cement, hastily smoothed over holes and its tendency to flood. "It's almost like a creek bed ... It's almost comical," said Jason Dose, the city of Shelton's senior planner. "It's all broken up and patched." Drivers of the south Shelton street can soon expect a smoother ride. The city of Shelton's Public Works Depart- ment began working yesterday to grind up and completely repave Turner Av- enue between First and Seventh streets and make storm-drainage improve- ments on Turner between Angelside Road and Seventh Street. The work is scheduled to be complet- ed the week of Sept. 22. Residents can expect periodic road closures and con- struction-equipment obstructions, and are encouraged to use alternate routes. The city advises drivers to use caution and follow the directions of the flaggers in the working area. The city's Public Works Department hears many complaints about Turner Avenue, Dose said. "It's a horrible section of street," he said. Moving gravel is kicked up during heavy rains and causes vehicles to lose traction on the road, Dose said.
