The N.C. Department of Transportation will look into the reader’s concerns, says Division 3 Maintenance Engineer Gerard Taylor.
“The department will review during a rain event in order to denote the possible ride quality and drainage deficiencies,” Taylor says.
“Next time it rains we will probably be out there,” he adds. “As far as the railroad (tracks), we might as well look at that at the same time.”
Work may be warranted “if it’s in an unacceptable state of maintenance,” Taylor says. But, he adds, “You can ride down any road in North Carolina and see pooling. It’s not a perfect world. It would be nice to see smooth, perfect pavement, but at what cost?”
