I would like to know where all are road improvement money is being diverted to. Who is stealing the money? The highway department is not doing its job at all!
When you do see a highway truck on pothole duty, they are almost always sitting on some side street hiding until after 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., then they carry only about two wheelbarrows of blackpatch on a four-ton truck.
The county roads in Lowell, Lake Dale, Cedar Lake and Crown Point are a disaster! The edges of some roads have way too many bumpy patches that date back four or more years. Burr Street running north was never completed, and if you go one more block north on Eastview, it's like a bad dream.
At least some of the roads could be ground smooth so people are not crossing the double yellow lines to avoid the poorly patched holes along the edges.
If the highway department can't find all the bad roads, I will volunteer to show them. Better yet, give me a fully loaded truck with a compactor.
