Rough Going On The Red Rock Scenic Loop

The Red Rock Scenic Drive, a 13-mile band of pavement into the foothills of the Spring Mountains, is scarred by some messy road construction.

Namely, the dicey work at two bridges near Miles 3 and 11.

Road contractor Wadley Construction Inc. applied the new road surface at the bridge areas at the wrong temperature, so Wadley had to rip up the newly-minted pavement.

So what's left is a nasty and bumpy washboard surface that is dangerous for road cyclists.
