Can't blame the contractors for potholes or crappy paving.
They only build roads, and pave them according to specifications on which they submitted their bid.
It's the specs that are inadequate when it comes to quality of construction. if you ask for only 4" of gravel below 1/2" of asphalt (for example), that's what you're going to get!

It's our call; if we want better, more durable roads, we have to pay for them through higher taxes.

As it is now, it appears to be cheaper for cities to keep fixing potholes (and repave the roads every 4-5 years) than to do it right in the first place.


I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
