Road more traveled

Follow the brick road, or at least follow the lead taken with the one block of pavement taken along Water Street, from West to Crawford streets.

In what took about a half day of work and years of pleading, the uncovering of the asphalt on that section of Water Street has added charm and character to the downtown area.

Now on top of that, the commemorative brick project at the historic Firehouse Center and Gallery and the progress of the Streetscape project will certainly add to the atmosphere of downtown Bainbridge.

As Councilmember Roslyn Palmer said, the brick-exposed street and the commemorative brick project complement each other, and she said she would like to “push our bricks” to bring more events and visitors to the downtown area.

Even further is the hope of adding more streets in the downtown area where the asphalt could be scraped off and the original brick street exposed.

The brick project of the Bainbridge-Decatur County Council for the Arts and the city’s exposure of the bricks on one block of Water Street is just the beginning of some roads more traveled.
