It took months, but the 2100 block of kater street has been repaved. #sanstrees pic.twitter.com/UDldnN8bip— Mr. Fox (@NakedPhilly) August 5, 2014
Well, look it what we have here. This tweet from Naked Philly shows a wonderfully paved 2100 block of Kater Street in Graduate Hospital. For months, the 2100 and 2200 blocks of Kater Street were closed as the Philadelphia Water Department was busy digging up the street to replace the an aging water main, which is good thinking. While some people lament the fact that other infrastructure wasn't buried with the new pipes, the street is finally navigable again — that includes by the Philadelphia Parking Authority, who had already slapped a ticket on one of the cars parked on the pristine pave-job. Newly paved streets are usually filled with street hockey games and skaters, not freshly placed parking tickets. C'mon, PPA, this is why we can't have nice things!
