There are dirt roads that can be maintained. They are a disgrace! No road gravel has replenished it in a decade. Only a two-day maintnence man rides a plow as if he is tilling the soil at a farm. Dirt will be scraped from the road on Mondays and Tuesdays and palced in a pile for all the community members to see between Wednesday to Sunday. The next Monday morning, he takes the dirt pile and scatters it throughout the miles of dirt roads depleating the dirt pile by Tuesday. Wednesday throgh Sunday, the community members see the 'magic' as 'poof!' the pile is gone making the poorly-educated feel that he did a great job! This goes on every week.
Did you know that by the incoherent leaders of Lakr Glenwood they actually *BELIEVE* that potholes are caused soly by speeding? It's true! Read the signs as you drive in on the right side.
If anyone had picked up a book at he local library, they would have read that...
1. Harsh weather is usually the contributor
2. Dirt roads get pot holes because of rain falling
Being that I have 13 years road construction, 3 years with Dept Transportation, I *KNOW* real ways to fix a dirt road...
Large gravel up to 3 inches across, then half red clay and half sand mix. It will turn very hard after it packs.
Obtain quarrydust, fine irregular quarry stones, slightly larger stones 1/4". Mix together with portland cement at a ratio of 10 to 1 ( very weak ). Shovel the DRY mix into the potholes, and apparently the moisture in the ground "sets" the mix. It works because of the weak mix being able to adjust to the weight of traffic, and the cement content more or less binds it together, IT'S A VERY CHEAP REPAIR.
All the community's money that has been raped from its members in the past 5 years could have solved this problem.
I challenge someone from the community to prove me wrong.
'dollar wise that has been spent in the past 5 years on roadwork'
'how much it will cost to do it correctly'
'how much will be saved in years to come'
Shell out the money now!!!!
As it is now in the community,'a penny saved, a pond foolish'.
