Regarding "When will 9th St. be repaved?" (Oct. 27, Letters): I am happy to state that the city of Modesto has just completed resurfacing Ninth Street from B to D streets. Additionally, the city is completing concrete curb repairs on Ninth Street between L and Needham streets, so that this section of Ninth Street can be repaved during the spring of 2008.
The section of Ninth from D Street to L Street is the responsibility of the state Department of Transportation. Caltrans has scheduled the repaving of this section of Ninth Street for spring 2008.
public works director, city of Modesto
