More work is needed on the section of Highway 21 that was poorly repaved this summer.
The bumpy paving job has left a lot of questions for residents, city officials and the paving company hired to do the work.
"The contractor came back and redid one lane in each direction," said Grant Schaffer, director of Project Management for the City of Fort Saskatchewan. "We took a look at it when they were done and we still weren't happy with the northbound left lane."
Come spring time, the contractor will be back to fix it again.
"It's just the one lane that's really the issue right now, the rest isn't bad, it's not maybe as perfect as we'd like it but it does pass the specifications that we have."
Schaffer added the contractor hasn't told him or the city why the job had so many deficiencies.
Nothing has been paid to the contractor yet, city officials are waiting until the whole road is up to par to hand over any money, if at all.
