Back in July when I wrote about the detour and the paper said the road would be closed until October I really never believed it would take that long. And frankly I think they must have worked for an hour in the morning, had a two hour break, worked for an hour, had lunch, then played cards all afternoon. I mean the road was closed, it's not like we could drive down there and see what they were doing.
But finally the road from highway 16 to Highway 441 is back open. Thom Abbott no more detours through the farm, by the church. And looking at what was done I really don't understand why it took 4 months. So you think I don't know how long road work takes, yeah... my daddy did that for 30 years.
This photo was taken by Joe Walton who works at Lane Realty. I think he's excited about the road being open too. It was just a 3 mile detour, but on a country road with a stop sign and all the turns it took about 7 to 10 minutes depending on traffic.
