Our Road Got “Fixed”

Road (11)

Back in 1998-99 when we finished the construction of our house and moved in we were assured by the contractor and the mayor that we would get a road to our house. Back then the implication was that it was part of a planned neighborhood and there would be a paved road. As I have blogged about before, that never really happened, but the fact that there was never an actual road put into our house did make our neighborhood very quiet. Tuesday I came home from work and was surprised to find a coral surface for our road being spread and rolled by trucks from Public Works. We now have a pretty smooth driving surface to get to our house for the first time in 16 years. Thank you to the Yigo mayor and to the PIU alumna who works in the mayor’s office and may have suggested that our neighborhood would be a good place to do this.

Here are the “before and after” pictures. The picture on the left was taken in 2009 from about 75 yards forward of the picture on the right

I also snapped a couple pictures of the tractors doing the work

Irene and I remember very well the "pot-holy" road to your house, where we lived in 2001/2002. Wow - what a difference that new pavement will make, especially to the shocks on one's car! Now all you need is a new pavement, as Anne Stinnette wrote.
