Reader unhappy with road repair
After 10 years of driving over the railroad tracks between Remount and Yeamans Hall Roads, I was very pleased to be detoured through Hanahan while these uneven, bumpy tracks were being repaired. Finally, I thought, no more horrendous vibrations and misalignment of my vehicle’s chassis.
Was I ever mistaken!
The repairs on the tracks are far worse!
Although the rumble is gone, it has been replaced by nothing less than a stomach-wrenching ride like one at Coastal Carolina Fair! The lurch one feels upon entering and leaving the tracks is enough to cause nausea and an uncomfortable shift in one’s position behind the wheel! The first time I drove over it my thoughts were that this must be phase one of the repaving jobs and phase two would certainly smooth things out. But no! Weeks later, the horrendous track crossing still there, the unfortunate blunder of those whose job it was to smooth the track making it more passable for vehicles.
Surely something can be done to fix this problem. Surely someone in charge rode over the tracks before signing off on this contract, and surely we will see rework on the track crossing before another decade.
