    WSB/others. If you get a chance to ask a question at the bridge briefing can you ask these 2? 1)SDOT said they would be doing repaving. What are they actually going to do? Spot paving or the whole thing? And 2) will SDOT commit to monthly updates-say the 1st Monday of the month. They owe it to us to keep us up to date will actual progress.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
