What's Up?


Q: What happened to chip sealing and smoothing out McLane southbound from Airport Road to Longhorn? Also, I thought Bonita was also slated for 2005?

A: "Longhorn to Forest was done in 2003 and it isn't scheduled to be done again until 2008," said La Ron Garrett, public works engineer for Payson. "That is the best section of that road. McLane from Forest to Airport, which is in horrible shape, we did not do this year because we are scheduled to bid that out for a complete rebuild next spring. So, it didn't make sense to (chip seal it) just to rip it out."

Bonita is scheduled for summer 2006. It was never in the 2005 schedule, he said.
