There has been a lot of road construction in Nebraska this year. I really don’t mind it,since when it’s all over we’ll have nice smooth roads, but there is a part that has become almost comical.
The windows in my classroom look right out onto the highway. It is one of my favorite parts of our location – we see everything happen! Semis, motorcycles groups, ambulances (we say a little prayer) – it’s fantastic.
But the construction? While it’s been fascinating watching them tear out sections of road, tear out sections of medians, tear out sections of curb, then replace, it seems likes it’s been going on forever. I don’t mean ‘several days’ forever, I mean ‘since the start of school’ forever. I think it was our second week of school we put a note out on one of the worker’s trucks asking if he could come inside and answe our questions. (He did, and Mr. Pancoke was delightful.) Seriously – going on two months. Same section of road.
Today they poured the asphalt. Maybe this is the end?
