So... who wants to put wagers on the time it takes to complete this project...I'm pretty bad with memory, but didn't the last, flat level bridge in Dune Allen take about a year? I'm assuming, of course, they will use the same contractor...
Does Walton county have a traffic engineering manager like Bay county? Just wondering if we have anything more than a road crew that half-ass fixes potholes. Those of you that have to deal with this already delayed bridge closing... I feel for ya.
No, we also don't elect state representation that diverts ridiculous amounts of money for both infrastructure and to pad a political cronies pocket.
To be fair our public works folks have a huge job with the largest county in the state. I still feel they did an excellent job with the repaving in Seagrove despite causing housewives to miss mani/pedi appointments, but they can speed through at twice the speed limit on that new coating!
Also keep in mind that the large salaries are reserved for elected officials and produce nothing layers of management. How long would you last in the hot sun over hot asphalt for around $10/hr.?
I understand where you're coming from, but being the largest county and having little in the way of planning or foresight and poor infrastructure, we should have a higher standard here than mediocre pavers. They left a bowl in our street, so guess where it floods...yep, my yard.
No, that was redfish lake , the drive over ( no bridge) clogged drain and caused SOME road wash out. Road sat closed for over a month. County thinking about a fix. Huck calls fl. Governor ... job done and finished in a week.As I recall, when our neighbor Mike Huckabee got involved last time on this, that temp bridge was up in, like, a week. I vote for The Governor to be Adjunct Project Manager.
