Roads over trails

The 23rd March edition of the Hays Free Press contained an article about the Vybe system of trails.  My opinion is that Kyle would be better served if the emphasis would be on improving the roadways in Kyle.  With the growth of Kyle, many of the roadways are inadequate to handle the vehicle traffic they are forced to permit.  In addition to the fact that many roadways are two lane (where a center turn lane is needed), many need repair.  The portion of Windy Hill Road, from IH-35 to the newly completed roadway, is an example of roadway that needs repair.  There are potholes that need asphalt, there are patches where asphalt has been used to patch potholes, but was so poorly done they remain rough, there are patches where the shoulder is missing to the point of the white line is gone.  The whole section needs to be rebuilt.  I can guarantee that that more vehicles use the Kyle roadways than people, bicycles and golf carts will use the Vybe trails on any given day.
