Minnesota Highway 13 needs resurfacing

Published 9:12 am Friday, June 6, 2008

When you are driving down Highway 13, how do you think the quality of the road is? I bet that 99 percent of you will say that the road is awful. It is full of potholes and seams because of the wear and tear of the Minnesota winters.

However, I do respect those workers who have put gravel in the potholes and tar along the white line road markings. I know that they have tried hard to make it more safe to drive on.

From the information that I have received, however, the road will not be redone until the year 2010. Even though I cannot drive yet, I still can see the damage of the road and feel the effect of going over those deep potholes.

What I am trying to say is that Highway 13 needs to be redone before 2010. Why put money in fixing just some of the potholes and cracks in the road when the whole road needs to be redone? So, the next time you are driving down Highway 13, think about this article that I just informed you about.
