Why don’t you come try fixing North H instead….its a ****hole road…and its wrong…our taxes need lowered… Report Reply 0 replies · active 367 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Jeremy Jones · 367 weeks ago Woodlawn is being repaired to prevent it from becoming worse. It was built about 15 years ago and has several panels of concrete cracking. Those cracks become larger and allow water to get under the pavement and cause more damage. If streets are repaired early on we can prevent major repair costs in the future. It is unfortunate that road maintenance causes traffic inconvenience but it is necessary. Crews will be actively working the first week of the project. The second week of the road closure allows time for the concrete to cure.

Anyone who travels that way hopes they don’t drop down to China if they happen to hit one of them. I was told 3 yrs ago that they were going to fix this, still waiting! It’s so much fun to try to avoid the holes when parents waiting for children getting out of school at Eisenhower are parked on that curve. Personally, I think Woodlawn is a pretty good street !!
