Walmart repaving

Walmart was causing traffic confusion at the shopping center yesterday. The main entrance was closed as workers were repaving part of the Walmart parking lot. Below a truck is spraying tar onto the road, probably as a way to help new asphalt adhere better.
A constant supply of dump trucks were needed to keep the paving machine going. I had never seen these trucks before--they were from Omega Trucking of Griffin, Indiana.
I did not know that there was anything wrong with the old parking lot, but Walmart may know best.

The old parking lot was getting bad with big pot holes. They patched them, but patches never last very long.
