Sound Off: The city has hired a paving company for the area around Quail Run School and the paving is absolutely awful with pockmarks in it, and when winter comes it will freeze and thaw and damage the pavement. Is there any way they can get the paving company to do a better job or get a penalty from them? The street is worse than it was.
Roger Steinbrock, marketing supervisor for the city of Lawrence, provided this response: City staff has evaluated this work, which was part of the city’s 2012 micro-surfacing project, and found no specific abnormalities with the work that was done. Typically, when micro-surfacing is done, the cosmetic appearance of a road is improved through vehicle traffic and daily use. The road’s surface should smooth over the next few months. Any area where the product used doesn’t adhere to the road will be addressed next spring through the product’s warranty.
