That didn’t take long {Bloomfield Bumps}

Bloomfield Street in Hoboken was always one of the most kidney-jarring roads in town (along with Washington Street).

It was “paved” not too long ago. And as we detailed previously – it started getting ripped up pretty much right away.

But something else is awry. Even in areas that weren’t physically opened for whatever reason – the road has become “bumpy” again.

Like what kind of paving material is the city ordering? It’s as if the pavement is smearing off! Your car shouldn’t vibrate on a recently re-surfaced road. Have they designed a perfect asphalt that deliberately washes away after a couple dozen rainfalls?

I can bet there no real warranty accompanies these paving projects. Like an expected life-span or remedies if they begin falling apart in a certain time.

Never let a woman do a man’s job.
