Mark those bumps, pleasePosted Thursday, November 4, 2010, at 2:57 PM
It's always irritating when you hit something in the road large enough to knock your vehicle's wheels out of balance -- particularly if that something could be marked.
The now-reopened Fairfield Pike's intersection with the still-under-construction new bypass is one example. The bed of the new road is several inches below Fairfield Pike, and enough to possibly the wheel balance of vehicles with lower-profile tires.
Even when stopping at the new stop sign, the other side of that intersection seems high enough to me that it should be marked.
Deep gashes in roads are left behind too often following paving projects or under-pavement utility construction. A little thought can go a long way in such cases.
