WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? Fix it first looked at Laney-Walker Boulevard on July 27, and found that - just down the way from the extremely bumpy railroad crossing - road markings are fading near Twiggs Street.

WHO'S RESPONSIBLE? Augusta Traffic Engineering is responsible for lane markings and street signs. Call (706) 821-1841.

WHAT'S BEING DONE? Officials said - before administrator Fred Russell proposed budget cuts - that the city had run out of funds for thermoplast, which is bonded to the road at high temperatures. The same holds true now as the city looks to save funds.
