I LIKE THE NEW ROAD I-795 I TRAVEL IT EVERY DAY ALMOST. I FEEL THEY USED CHEAP STUFF TO BUILD ALL
ROADS NOW . IF THEY WOULD TAKE TIME AND THINK OF THE TRAFFIC ON THE ROADS AND FIXED THEM RIGHT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM .

Did they even get all the I-795 signs up before the road surface started cracking?

Material costs have gone up so fast that it isn't surprising that roads aren't being constructed properly. The state doesn't have enough people to inspect ongoing construction, companies doing the work are trying to cut corners, and residents don't want their taxes going up. This is what the convergence of these factors leads to.
