why would the hwy finally get paved, it hasnt been paved in years just patched , and then less than a month later they tear it up and put big patches on it below newland elm ,it really dont make much sence as to why they would do a crazy thing like that i know they were doing work on the sidewalks but by all means they should have gotten that work done first whoever does the planning on that project needs fired for a stupid stunt like that,as everyone in avery county knows how the weather is up here anyhow and were to be lucky if what roads we just got paved would hold up anyhow, and know we the taxpayers have just paid for someones mistake because what will happen when the road freezes and thaws out a few times you will either have a bunch of potholes where the road has been patched or a bunch of humps to jump over this really pisses me off of what stupid dumbasses we vote in.......

well i guess the patch job below newland elm wasnt good enough, so now the pavement comes up in linville as your turning into the hospital, before you know it it will be as bad as it was before they paved it,if they want to play around with our money paveing and takeing it up and repaving it again why dont they just pave roads that need it .with the roads freezing and thawing out over and over lets see how long it will last.

I agree. That pavement was not of good quality anyway, look how thin it is. Everybody talks about how broke the state is, we can't afford anything except some tar and gravel on the main road into Newland, yet, Friday guess what? They came through to MOW. All that fuel and time to mow after we have had two different accumulating snow storms. From the engineer "Ledbetter" and the DOT, there is no wonder we have to drive on glorified logging roads. Remember Ledbetter's genius idea to remove the stop lights in Newland and put up four way stops?
