Beef up the pavement

Mayor Dianne Watts and members of council: Thank you for the prompt repair to the boulevard along the 6500-block of 144 Street, and for putting a concrete barrier in place that will hopefully keep the trucks turning into and out of Cedarline Products off the grass and sidewalk,

But another set of truck tracks from the north entrance arcs completely across to the sidewalk. There is no protective barrier in that location.

The problem is primarily caused by the fact that the trailers have been getting longer, with three axles, and at the same time Cedarline has narrowed its entrance driveways as they store more stacks of lumber right at the entrances, restricting the trucks from starting their turn onto 144 Street until they are half-way across the street.

The heavy trucks are also breaking up the pavement in the street in front of the entrances, resulting in permanent potholes in the road.

It is dangerous for cars to zig-zag around the potholes. The pavement in this area needs to be beefed up a bit to support the heavy trucks turning into and out of the Cedarline yard.
