After months of road work, Canal Road and the culverts are complete.
But the town of Westport finished the job with galvanized steel guardrails that make us all feel like we live on I-95.
All the neighbors on both sides of the canal are upset that the town did not use wooden guardrails. There have never been guardrails before. Now they’re rusting (after just 1 week), and an eyesore to all of us.
We would have all happily pitched in to pay the extra cost for wooden guardrails.
When I called the highway department, their response was, “we knew everyone would be upset, but you can paint them.”
