Request repairs on N Decatur Rd.

From local resident Jim Smith: I went to the DC R&D website and filled out the online paving/pothole "Request for Assistance" form to get them to repave the westbound curb lane of N. Decatur Road.

Superior are so bad that folks are constantly swerving into the other lane to avoid them. Please fill out the request form and let's try to get some results from our tax dollars !!
