Rough roads – even temporary – not appreciated

So here it is from someone who doesn’t appreciate driving on a bumpy, rough road, to say it mildly.

So here it is from someone who doesn’t appreciate driving on a bumpy, rough road, to say it mildly.

Oh yes, you have fixed the sewer system, but what have you done to the road? Why is it whenever one the road is ripped up for adding a light, or digging because of sewer problems, the road is repaved in an invasive manner? Who is in charge of that department? If it’s the City the whoever is in charge should be sent to drive over the mess a few times a week and he would soon get the road fixed in a proper manner.

For instance on Evans road, the road was repaved only partly in some parts of the road; South Sumas –  if you drive to try to keep the road resurfaced in between your tires, you will drive right into the other lane.

If you cannot do a good job, for Pete’s sake, resurfacing the sewer line section, redo the whole road. I could do a better job with blindfolds.

Keith Wilson, are you kidding?  We do not all drive dirt bikes! If you are not finished with the road, who cares? Make the road drivable.

Please, I realize Chilliwack is a farm city but we do not drive tractors. I am sure they are not impressed either!
