I can’t understand for the life of me why Maple Ridge, with the amount of taxes we pay and with all the new buildings going up – which will generate more taxes – cannot keep our roads in better shape.
They are despicable.
Some manhole covers have sunken to the point of drivers driving on the wrong side of the road to avoid them on Dewdney trunk between 232nd and 240th Streets. It’s an absolute disgrace that one happens to be right out in front of the worksyard, and the other at 234th Street on Dewdney.
I drive the whole Lower Mainland every day with my work, and Maple Ridge is a hicktown when it comes to roads.
