  1. I don't understand why they are ripping up parts of US-27. It doesn't appear that there is anything wrong with the pavement the way it is. What a waste of tax dollars!

    1. Don't judge a book by it's cover. This repair isn't obvious, and some of it is preventative which will save tons of your tax dollars in the future.

  2. Is there an update on bridge on Waterworks?

    1. Yes, we updated that about a month ago, I believe. I think they said a bid would begin around now, with work starting in August, then completed by the end of the year.

  3. They need to pay more attention to this roda you can't even drive down with out massing up your car

    1. Nor can you post something on FTM while drivving onit.

  4. Is River Road open again to Route 8 since the land slow last week?

  5. Waterworks rd. Is a real mess due to the sanitation dept. All the way down Wilson and all roads connected.these are heavily travel especially when the bridge on waterworks is residents we can barely get out of our drives
