I was biking home and I went over a road that was recently paved by a crew that was putting in a house. I know my bike does not take the contortions in roads as well as cars but this road was essentially a miniature concentrated version of the Appalachian Trail.
I feel Asheville should have a standard of care for its property. If someone purposefully penetrates property that the city created, they should at least replace what it destroyed to the same standard they found the city’s property. The phrase “Leave it better than you found it” comes to mind.
And the kicker is, the folks tearing up the road are not done yet building, so there could be another half-mile of crappy road. Please look at the asphalt job of the company constructing on Waynesville Road. New Belgium would never stand for this debacle.
