Why did the N.C. DOT patch potholes on the southern end of Front Street instead of repaving the street?

The section of South Front Street from the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge area to Carolina Beach Road is under contract for resurfacing, N.C. Department of Transportation spokesman Jerry Higgins said.

“We will be milling and resurfacing that section of roadway this fall. Our contractor had not mobilized to that section of roadway prior to the heavy rains, other than to do some scheduled work around the railroad crossings back in August.”

With recent heavy rains causing more problems on that stretch of road, “(N.C. DOT) maintenance must have done some temporary patching with that upcoming resurfacing in mind,” Higgins said.

    They should dig up the asphalt and use concrete. The asphalt continues to need repair and will not last as long as concrete. The heavily loaded trucks coming and leaving our port is too much for the asphault to handle. This asphault has been patched, repaired, and replace several times. It would be real interesting to know how many times.
