Damaged bricks, stones replaced on downtown mall
Employees of Patton’s Masonry Inc. of Edinburg will spend the next few days repairing brick and stonework at the intersection of Loudoun and Boscawen streets on the Loudoun Street Mall in Winchester. Some of the recently installed bricks and stone have become cracked and dislodged due to vehicle traffic. The cracked compass in the middle of the intersection will also be repaired. Removing bricks that were set in sand at right is Keary Kisamore of New Market; Charlie Harold of Maurertown is at left. Perry Eisenach, Winchester’s public services director, said the work is expected to take about a week and another 10 days will be allowed for the mortar underneath the bricks to set, meaning the intersection likely won’t be reopened until the first weekend in June. HRI Inc., the mall project’s contractor, is responsible for the replacement cost, he said, and the mall will be reopened to delivery vehicles when the intersection is reopened.
