Workers began ripping out broken pavement this past week as a prelude to repaving the entire Mid-County Library parking lot, a project that could take up to three weeks. After its completion, Charlotte County will finish up the landscaping of library grounds, including the replacement of 11 trees that were cut down because their roots were damaging the parking lot islands and pavement. This time, root barriers will be installed to prevent future problems.

PORT CHARLOTTE — Work crews are sprucing up the outside of Mid-County Regional Library, yielding a fresh, new look to the parking lot and grounds.

Parking lot renovations will involve removing and restoring damaged pavement and broken curbing, caused by the rambling roots of 11 trees that had to be chopped down in mid-life. The project also will address areas subject to poor drainage, followed by the sealing and striping of the entire parking and driving surface, said David Milligan, director of Charlotte County Facilities Construction and Maintenance.
