The End is in Sight!

Nah, not the end of the world, but if you listen to either political party, they do give you that impression.

What I meant was the end of the seemingly endless road construction on Fairground street and the difficulty in getting in or out of our subdivision. Yesterday, road construction crews took that opportunity to dig up yet again the entrance to our street. We live on a court so there is only one access road, which, oh yeah! they are paving and widening.

Yesterday, DH ran some errands while I waited for a delivery. He left and 10 minutes later called to say it was difficult to get in and out and he just got out, had to wait for machinery to move. Last night we went to see how far the asphalt had creeped up and ohmigosh! it's almost to our access street.

I know I shouldn't get so excited about paving, but this has been going on for 11 months and 1 week and 2 days. Soon, I'll be able to drive out of here without waiting for huge machinery to move, without having to dodge cones or road closed signs or big holes basically left uncovered. Parking a shovel in front of it does nothing to keep animals or children out of these holes.

A year ago, the city installed a traffic light at the end of Fairground and Walnut, which has been in blinking mode for the last year. Once that is fully activated, it will be a straight out trip without risk of being sideswiped crossing Walnut street! There will be a sidewalk that will link us to civilization. The anticipation is killing me!
