Is Spillway Rd. to be patched or repaved?
So far, it has been sloppy patch work.

I think what they are doing is repairing the roadbed where it needs it, and then opening it back up, in an attempt to not have to wholesale close between 7 and 9. Once they get those parts completed, then they can fresh layer the whole thing.

I might be wrong, and that is a guess, but that appears to be whats going on.

It’s dangerous as it is now. This is a really sloppy repair. Who is inspecting the work?
