Lovett Pallet was recently on the Channel 6 News! Our Plant Manager and myself were interviewed to discuss the impact of the I-70 beautification project that resulted in last Thursday’s closure.
Channel 6 quoted me as saying:
For Paul Lovett, who owns a pallet recycling company, the detour along Harding Street to Interstate 65 will add two hours of trucking time for each driver.
But he said he can live with the temporary inconvenience.
“Seeing what they’ve done so far with the project, it’s worth a little inconvenience for a short term for the benefit of the city,” Lovett said. “If they (visiting businesses) come to town and check out our city, if that helps them move their business here, then companies like mine service them. It’s worth this closure to have the potential possibilities.”
