7 Action News gets results for neighbors

(WXYZ) - Waking up this morning, Carrie McCoy got a pleasant surprise when she looked out her window.

"I saw the construction workers at work, working on my street… getting it together," said McCoy.

Crews were paving her street in the 10700 Worden on Detroit’s east side. One side of the street had been torn up a couple of weeks ago, according to McCoy.

It made it a struggle for McCoy to drive out of her driveway.

The ramp from her driveway to the street was missing after crews ripped up the road.  The roadwork caused her car to drop several inches and she feared her car was damaged.

McCoy said she made several calls the city with no luck and eventually McCoy called 7 Action news.

After speaking to a spokesperson from the mayor’s office, the city was immediately on it and Friday morning, a fresh layer of asphalt was placed on the street.

"It's amazing how a tip from Channel 7 Action News got them on the ball, got them working,” said McCoy.  “I’m able to get in and out of my driveway without tearing up my car, without busting a tire."
