Are roads just being painted up instead of being structurally fixed? That’s what one Turlocker said when they sent in this photo to TurlockCityNews.com.
The city has certainly seen its fair share of road drama over the past few years, from bumpy, pot hole-covered roads, to delayed construction projects.
Recently though, the stretch of Monte Vista Avenue between Geer Road and Del’s Lane was reconstructed after years of being in bad need of repair.
Councilmembers also approved a road tax last week that is expected to generate about $5.6 million annually, or about $39.2 million over the seven-year life of the tax, to be placed on the November ballot. In accordance with the tax, the money would be split among repairs across the city, with each quadrant of the city expecting to see some repairs each year.
