When You Think You're Safe ... Part 2

The saga of the road construction continues.

Those of us who live on West Main Street have noticed during the past week that the work effort on the reconstruction project has been quite light.  I thought that, perhaps, it was the heat or the rain. However, today, we got the answer.

A note delivered to homeowners let us know that the contractor and the city have determined that the concrete road bed that they had hoped to retain and build upon is in such bad shape that they will be tearing it up as they did on Rogers Street.  They will then put down a bed of gravel after which they will begin to construct the gutters.

Although the note reassured homeowners that, even with this unexpected delay, the project is on schedule, I can't help feeling just a tad skeptical.  This is going to mean a great deal more dust and noise for everyone and inconvenience for those whose driveways are on West Main Street.

As I said in my earlier post, this had better be ONE GREAT ROAD!

We live far down passed Rogers and I am frustrated with the construction. I can't imagine being on Main and directly affected. I avoid Main at all costs but making that turn onto Rogers is getting dicey as of late. It seems that the construction people are parking along the street making that narrow intersection even narrower and more unsafe. I'm not sure this new road is worth the headache!
