LCG Road repairs - Sept 2015

Postby TelemarkSean » September 17th, 2015, 10:40 am

There's new asphalt down on two or 3 corners of Lorane-Cottage Grove road. They repaired two of the tight corners that had little bumps/seams right in the good spots. Of course, now there's new/old pavement transitions where you enter the corners.

I think these were pre-emptive repairs. At least, I didn't feel like the corners were sketchy. Cool to see. Now they need to do Dillard in South Eugene.

Hm. Looks like they're continuing to "repair" LCG road. There are now a bunch of fresh and unnecessary tar snakes all over the road, including in some of the good corners. Seems like It's a lot worse in the eastbound lane. If you haven't ridden it in a while, take it easy the first time through.

That's really unfortunate. I don't remember there being much wrong with the pavement on that road.

There were some tiny cracks which were a lot less dangerous than the tar snakes, IMO.

I really wish ODOT would do tar snakes like CalTrans. They're unnoticeable in California once they've cured for a bit.

From my experience, it seems ODOT could learn a LOT from CalTrans! :thumbsup:

You'd know, for sure!

LCG is in pretty good shape! There's a little gravel in a few corners but it's cleaner now than I thought it would be. Hamm/Camas Swale (AKA, those two really good hairpin turns) is really clean right now.
