The south entrance of Highway 21 should be less bumpy. Finally.
Original work on the highway was done last summer. Contractors were back in October to re-do one lane in each direction. In November, they returned for more work on the northbound left lane. After the job was still deemed unsatisfactory, crews finished in June.
"The ride quality wasn't what we were expecting so they had to remove and replace that," said the city's director of project management Grant Schaffer. "Contractor hasn't really come forward with an explanation as to why. I'm not sure if they know why."
The work has been completed and line painting will be done shortly.
As the work was covered under warranty, there was no extra charge to the city.
