This puzzles me why i never drive on a smooth road. The construction zones seem to be disaster flop. By the time they get anything done, the temporary road beats your car/truck to pieces only to have the next few miles in plan to "repave" in the next few months. It's unbelievable how they don't make a road last longer than it does, and why would a "seam" have to feel like a speed-bump on a 65mph highway? Do they expect it to settle into place after 2,000,000 cars hop their shocks off the frame?
I'm not sure on the engineering aspect behind it all, but damn, I would assume they're cutting corners to make more money, assure job security and/or face deadlines that can't pass quality judgement.
Anyhow, whatever the plan might be....It's going backwards in future development as i'd imagine we're beyond dirt roads, but closer to flying vehicles than a flat surface to rage on an idiot driver in front of you.
Bottom line, If a crack breaks a mommas back, all women would be in wheelchairs here. LOL

I agree. You ever notice how quit a few drains are stuck right where everyones tires has to hit them? For gods sake, they couldn't place them in the middle of a lane? It's a permanent pothole. What about the cobweb asphalt repairs? Looks like they're trying to camo the yellow lines in the road.
Whatever it is, their method should be obsolete ASAP.

I go through there quit often. With all the dump trucks and what not, that area is fit for a tired dune-buggy to flip over in. Hell, I've drove in smoother alleys than that whole side of town.
