The road construction project continues in Georgetown on Corson Ave. A project that could have been pushed a few years is now more tax money wasted. With all the public transit in trouble, you would think we could have transitioned some of this money (perhaps a million) to help people get to work and continue to ride the bus. I guess paving a road is more important then keeping people working and getting them to work on time (without cutting more routes). Not only are we wasting money for this paving project that could have been used better elsewhere we are also wasting additional police resources who will be sitting around (playing on the Internet in their cars) at the construction project to
help watch flaggers direct vehicles around the area.
To continue on this topic, Georgetown’s Corson Ave was shut down for several months while they made it “more safe”. Above and below, you’ll see some of the construction photos. We have several more now available. This has to be one of the worst road jobs I have ever seen. They didn’t even pave the road! Now it is has a bunch of patches all over the place.
