Rough Road Now Getting Attention

The in basket: Ralph Long Jr. wonders about a rough stretch of Central Valley Road just north of where he lives in Silverdale Estates. After a sewer line was buried in the roadway, the patch was poorly done, “bumpy and unsafe for a car traveling 40 mph, which is the speed limit,” he said. “Winter and slippery roads could add to the problem.”

The out basket: Ralph’s question came by regular mail, a rarity for Road Warrior these days, and I suspect he had his answer before I even read it.
There were “Rough Road” signs and other hints of a work in progress when I visited the site Wednesday, and a supervisor with the contractor said the finish paving would be done next week, unless they got to it this week, which he didn’t expect.
