Freshly paved roads ruined!

New Hoboken record: Newly paved road wrecked instantly!

I was joking with various Hoboken cops recently about the “Vegas over/under” (betting terminology) for when the first time the newly paved roads would get ripped up.

I threw out “six months” as a random guess. I thought I was being unkind to the city.

The real line should have been SIX DAYS. Holy crap!

Why bother paving at all anymore? Should be a crime!

At this point in time – it appears there is NO reason to pave Hoboken streets with asphalt. Can’t we just use rubber or astro-turf?

Maybe we can just lower Hoboken by 10 feet and use smooth sailing boats? There has to be a better way!

(Now the over/under need to be changed to “how MANY roads will get fucked up before the end of 2015?” Starting line is one dozen.)

Its not the hole that’s bad, its how they are patched when the work is done. There are ways to make the new asphalt patch seemless with the old asphalt but I dont think anyone in Hoboken checks the patch job to make sure it is sufficient. Knowing this…..all the companies/contractors that cut holes in our streets make the quick dirty repair and don’t care about what happens going forward.
