A 'Race' to the finish line

A ‘Race’ to the finish line

Keith Pritchett carefully mans his equipment as infrastructure work progresses on Race Street in New Castle Wednesday morning. Pritchett said the grading work here would be completed by the end of the day Wednesday, setting the stage for the street to paved in the next few days. Repair of sewer lines here necessitated the pavement removal. Once paved, officials say Race Street will be perhaps the smoothest its ever been, as a new surface replaces multiple patchwork efforts over many decades.
