Remember When 

Brick Streets


November 6, 2019

This is a topic that many of us have little knowledge of, however I am remembering days of brick streets.

I do not know [if] I have seen brick streets in Montana, however I do have bricks that were made in Havre, so bricks were available. I did spend several of my young years living in Mo., and there were a lot of brick streets. There are still brick streets in that area.

My question, how often are bricks replaced or do they last longer than pavement? Following up on that question might go on my “to do list.” What is the cost compared to paving, and think of the employment opportunities. I must admit, I am not sure I would want to be employed to lay bricks in the heat of the summer.

Guess I will be happy with my gravel roads. Looking at the up side, dodging pot holes, whether pavement or dirt roads, keeps your driving skills up.
