You want to know what caused

You want to know what caused the problem. It is all of the Lincoln County drivers who pass in the grass on the right side of the road on their way to work in the morning. It has gradually worn down and broken the pavement in that area. Put a sheriff's deputy out there for a week giving out tickets and some of that would stop!

really If you look at the

really If you look at the picture it isnt on the east bound side of Washington Rd. This is caused by big trucks turning into Riverwood delivering building materials and school buses. Maybe someone should ticket the students and parents that pass on the shoulder on William Few approaching Washington Rd in front of the Greenbriar Day care.
