    That is a very rough patch of road, particularly around that utilities access point. 

    Since the road is concrete, will the repaving work be in the form of concrete? It’s lame when SDOT uses asphalt to patch concrete. It looks cheap and ugly.

    Finally.  So many near misses when drivers tried to maneuver around each other through that mess.

    Paving also means concrete or asphalt, pretty sure this will be concrete. That raised manhole cover has been in that condition for at 30 years at this intersection.

    YAY!!! Saw all the SDOT marks and new it was coming soon.

    Finally…About time…That is a dangerous intersection because of the manhole.

Sorry, comment time is over.
