Recently, Cardiff residents have had a bumpy ride.
 
As Cardiff Road, or Township Road 554, is being reconstructed, residents have had to detour through the pothole-ridden Pittsburgh part of the hamlet.
 
Part of the detour guides locals along Range Road 251, which is already in rough shape from the amount of heavy dump truck traffic; residents have noted the deteriorating condition of the road since construction began.
 
Some residents have commented that it's a "necessary inconvenience of road construction" with hopes that Range Road 251 will be fixed alongside Cardiff Road.
 
Sturgeon County has not yet commented on the matter.
 
The project is in stage two which is anticipated to last another three weeks; during the beginning of stage three, the Discovery Avenue and Cardiff Road intersection will be closed down for one to two weeks.
 
For now, residents will have to navigate the rough detour.
