    WTFBBQ indeed.

    Just park your car in the street and handcuff yourself to the door handle.

    Get some neon signs, and glitter, and shit.

    Start a protest.
    Exactly. Get that "F__k Harper" guy in on it, too!

    Time has come, work gets done without a second thought. Even by that roadworks engineer we had on 780Tuners do that big thread a year or so ago, Edmonton has really been doing a ton of non-necessary paving. And the worst part is the final product is usually shittier than what they replaced

    And yet roads like a block from my place where they overfill the potholes with that stupid loose gravel that washes out in the next rain and have been doing it for years.

    I would like to know why it seems they rip up and repave Calgary Trail and Gateway every single year? I didn't think the road was that bad prior to them ripping it up.


    Because speed limits, like fears, are often just illusions.

    Thank Christ they finally repaved the underpass at Rexall.

    Every day my wheels fell off, my sidesteps fell off, and my teeth fell out.

    ya, they literally paved the part they ripped up this year last year. 34th ave to the toys r us was pretty much mint. If they want to repave something around there they should repave 34th ave; that road is fucked a mere 2 blocks over.

    They should grind down the areas that are at grade right now (around MH's and catchbasins), before they pave.

    They just made a mess of my range road for no reason last week.
    It was all paved up nice a month ago and then randomly a 500ft patch was poorly done leaving tar covered loose gravel all over the place.
    Try driving over that with fresh re71r at 90kmh. What a noise that makes.

    They actually did my road decent. I saw they dropped off a machine the night before for shaving it down and clearly used it because it's still flush in most areas. Only my 1cm too high in others.

    But perhaps this wasn't your average Alberta crew cuz when I left for work every single person on the site was doing something and same thing when I came home.
