waste of taxpayers $

The State Highway Administration showed up one day last week and began tearing up the sidewalk and handicapped ramps that were less than 10 years old to put in new sidewalks and handicapped ramps with bumps on them. Perhaps I could see replacing the ramp itself (not really, they were fine, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt), but the entire sidewalk? Not to mention, what did they do with all concrete they tore up? Dumped it somewhere? What a waste of money and resources!

new ramp with bumps - and a lot more concrete! - ugly

new on left, old on right - can you see any difference?

and isn't this mailbox now facing the wrong way (sideways)?

      I totally agree with you on that one. some of the stuff they do is ridiculous! there are many more things that ACTUALLY need repaired, that they don't bother to fix.
