It is difficult to drive up Wenatchee’s Miller Street without dismay. The pavement is only months old and already melted into ruts of oily black crud between strips of sandy gray gravel and pockmarked intersections. It looks awful. It contributes to the nagging feeling that our local infrastructure is slowly degrading.
Perhaps it best serves as a warning. This is what to expect if we continue down the cheap path, and find no way to adequately fund the infrastructure investments needed to hold this city together.
