CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A bumpy road has been causing issues for a lot of folks. It's at the intersection of Morehead Street and Freedom Drive. Warped may be the best way to describe it.
When I first contacted the NC Department of Transportation, the initial thought was the road may have been damaged by a leaking water main, which meant the city would have to fix that before any roadwork could be done. But as it turns out there apparently is no leak and so the DOT has taken action! Crews have re-surfaced the damaged section of street and it's smooth sailing once again.
So what did cause the problem? According to DOT, it appears there was a poor bond between the asphalt and an older concrete roadway surface. That weak bond most likely allowed the asphalt to heave as heavy traffic loads generated increased forces as they slowed for the signal.
Now that the new pavement has been put down, DOT will continue to monitor the intersection to make sure there are no future problems. If there are, they'll be out to fix them.
