FW residents protest over dilapidated street

By DARLA MILES - WFAA-TV - Thursday, June 7, 2007

People in a Fort Worth neighborhood are growing impatient after scheduled repairs to their roads were delayed.

Two dozen residents in the historic Morningside district of south Fort Worth took to the streets this morning in a bid to get the city's attention.

The patchwork is particularly noticeable on Ramsey Street.

Families say they have lived on the street for 46 years and this patchwork was all that has ever been done during that time. They say there has never been any comprehensive paving.

Residents say they have been negotiating with the city since November to get the road improved.

They said they were told street repairs would begin this March but construction hasn't started yet.
