Pothole repair begins on I-795

Posted October 20, 2008

— Work has begun to repair potholes along a stretch of Interstate 795 between Wilson and Goldsboro.

Crews from the N.C. Department of Transportation will work in the outside lanes in each direction over the next few weeks. The DOT wants to complete the repairs before true cold weather sets in for the season.

The repairs are expected to cost $600,000.

    i think that the company that orginally paved the road should have to fix it and fix it at no cost. all of these companies are in such a hurry to finish these roads that they do a sorry job.

    Yes this is a basicaly a new road an the pavement has been failing every since it was first opened to traffic why doesn't the ncdot allow the road maintenance or road oil unit that they have already got in place to instuite these temporary repairs rather than them wasting this amount of funding on the letting of another contract at taxpayers expense were that the will undoubtly end up letting these repairs to contract an paying out for a 10- 15 % amount of this contract in the form of a give away in the line item of moblization. which just pays a contractor for moving an bringing his equipment to the job site to do the job. wouldn't it make more sense to allow state forces to instuite the temp repairs being that they are already on the payroll anyway. oh that right though you don't any longer have any employees that are still instrested in doing their jobs or that have the experience to do the work as that ncdot has run off nearly everyone that had any experience
