Reese hill road

Reese hill road is too. It's trashed! Millions of tar snakes from the first corner on. I love the first two corners coming out of Sumas. Dropped into the first corner on a good lean and went squishy with snakes under foot (er, tire).
Yowsers, that killed the party! It was riding a Harley at a Shriner's parade after that...

Alot of the new Tar Snakes are already coming unsealed.
Seems like they are putting more and more "Bandaids" on these roads instead of fixing them or replacing them.

The stupid "we are too broke spending your tax money to pave the entire lane" is disgusting as well. We are slipping into second-world (as opposed to third-world where the potholes litter the road) roads around here...

"'A' Town"? Acme or Arlington? Not to be annoying, I just don't know which one you mean. It's important to be specific with safety warnings like that.

Pretty pissed about this.

I should have seen it coming when they started doing it everywhere around Monroe and Snohomish.

The chipseal is a nightmare.
