Repaved 30th Avenue to be repaved again: 'It's a little bumpy, man'

EUGENE, Ore. - The brand new pavement looks smooth, but if you drive it ...

"It's a little bumpy, man," said Kane Craft, who said he drives the road 10 times per day. "It looks smooth, but then when you get going, it's like what?"

"It's like a washboard," said daily driver Harvey Shields.

"It's really bumpy, kind of annoying," Jedidiah McKean said.

"You ever seen 'Cars'? You know when Lightning McQueen just tears through there to just get the job done?" Craft said. "That's what homeboy did. It's outrageous."

Engineers from the state and county tested the road and found it's bumpier than it's allowed to be.

"The average deviation for paving is somewhere between ¼ and 3/8, and on this area in some spots its actually up to 7/16 deviation," said Anne Marie Levis with Lane County. "So in the scheme of things it doesn't sound like a lot, but we want to make sure drivers are safe and paving's done right."

Levis said the re-repavement won't cost taxpayers any more money. But some people say it should have been done right.

"You know they need to do the job right the first time," Shields said. "Quit wasting our money, and problem solved."
