Update on Dewey Drive road project: The board discussed issues they have with the Dewey Drive project from Willow Springs to Torun Road. Supervisor Zdroik stated some of his concerns were divots in the road instead of a nice smooth layer. He also feels when they were doing passes, they didn’t seal the center correctly, leaving an opening which will allow water to get in and cause cracking. Supervisor Zdroik also stated there are too many rocks showing, a very rough finish and that the shoulders are not wide enough in all places. He feels the project should be overlayed or done over.
Supervisor Meis walked the entire road. He stated on the east end there are pockets in the road and its real rough in those spots. He agrees that the shoulders aren’t consistent. He also stated that near Torun Road it’s very rough.
Chairman King stated he met with Chris Loken from American Asphalt to discuss his concerns. Mr. Loken agreed the east end of the project needs to be redone. Chairman King would like to meet with him in the Spring to review what needs to be redone.
The board agreed to withhold the payment on this project until the concerns have been addressed to their satisfaction.
