Scorching temperatures cause Renton road to buckle
You know it’s hot when even concrete can’t take the heat.
Sunday’s high temperature near 90 degrees proved too much for a stretch of road in Renton, causing a seam in the road to crack and the pavement to slightly buckle.
The damage occurred in the westbound lanes of Southeast 128th Street near its intersection with 168th Avenue Southeast.
