This early week I observed a new updated vehicle patching asphalt 1500 block of Broadway. Two men in vehicles. One worker ahead with flag and bucket. New pickup with two workers riding in four cab pickup and a worker walking behind the entourage. It was pretty impressive. The green "patching contraption was really working on those potholes."
