Another upcoming stretch between Holt Street and 12th Street at Norkam secondary, the city was noted with multiple trucks, flaggers and road crews paving quite a large number of potholes and lengthy cracks.

But why now? Isn’t this an upcoming stretch to be ground up, including the potholes, then fully escavated and completely repaved?

It seems odd to be spending out tax dollars in this way, as Extreme Excavating will soon be ripping the city’s repairs and patching all up for the new undergound sewage pipes.
