They need to take this a bit further west to Elwood Rd. The area arounf the Bottles and cases shopping center is especially bad.

That figures. I wonder how much they just spent patching a bunch of big sections near St. Johnland road only to tear it all up again to put new asphalt down. So much for PLANNING!!!

And a construction worker lost his life during that patch job.

More "$timulus money" suddenly appears. But where did the rest of it go, doled out by Patterson and Cuomo ?
