Broken Pavement - Remix -

Pavement.

My little two lane paved cowpath is currently being used by tandem dumptrucks working on the 70 Bypass project.

It's coming apart. The county was out here twice - maybe three times yesterday - for the same hole. Right at the end of my neighbors driveway. It's funny. They patch it...here comes a truck....rrrrip...there goes the patch. Over and over and over.

Last week they patched a blow out bigger than my truck!

They came back three more times. Each time with a bigger truck. Finally, they decided to fix it right.

Money is but a tool
like a safety pin
or a bulldozer
Yet,
for far too many
money is a god
like no other
and like a bulldozer
scrapes bare
the sacred ground
better serviced
by a safety pin.

I remember when you first told us about this

What an unbelieveable waste of time and resources. Glad your truck hasn't fallen in though.

Sorry, I couldn't get this up sooner. My ISP finally decided to unlock the gates.



Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

They're Working Down the Road Apiece -

- fixing other holes.
The entire road will have to be resurfaced - after ...
after the Bypass is open.

Ah yes.

Roads, roads, roads and more roads.

I do believe in having good roads.

I just don't believe that future expansion/improvement projects should be started/funded until corridors are established for mass transit/rail because that is absolutely part of the solution for our future transportation needs. Some expansion projects probably wouldn't be necessary (by the time the damn things are completed!) with a strong mass transit/rail system in place.

That hole was evil.

There were also brick and block sized pieces of pavement in the road. They would have bent rims had they been hit.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Nice Unique!

Wonder how much money could be saved in this State if only the DOT worked efficiently....

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.
