Columbia County road crews were called out to fix a section of Meadow Hill Drive Monday afternoon after it collapsed.

The road weakened by the continuous rain and the weight of a garbage truck caused a section of the asphalt to give way, according to Mike Whitaker, Columbia County Roads and Bridges Special Projects manager.

Crews have made temporary repairs to the road and will be making more permanent repairs on Tuesday.

A vehicle weight/rain tax for CC? Oh, we have a vehicle wt. tax

But we can start a new tax to pay for these engineering or lack of engineering. Taxes cover a multitude of sins. Its in the Bible. The bible of corrupt government management.

Anything passes for engineering in CC. A small child knows more about fluid mechanics. Small children build dams and roads. Or they used to when they actually played outside.

At least the road crew moved

At least the road crew moved fast enough that no one got their car damaged by the collapsed road, hopefully the repair will last. People should make sure they learn more about the Towing in Green Cove Springs, FL, if the rest of the road is also in poor condition they might need their help one of these days.

A critical feature of image-guided surgery (HIFU) is the ability to localize and verify ablation of the therapeutic target in real-time. The HIFU systems from SonaCare Medical (formerly USHIFU) combine three capabilities into one single operating platform; integrated imaging, precision ablation and real-time tissue change validation. In other words, the capability to target, treat and track the tissue of interest while sparing healthy surrounding tissue.
