Route 176 project

Published: Sunday, July 27, 2014 5:30 a.m. CST

At 10:45 a.m. Friday, July 18, near Routes 31 and 176, the sky was beautiful, sunny and blue, and temperatures were in the upper 70s. But there was not one road construction worker or machinery in sight.

This kind of day is no excuse to drag out this project, which may cause us to have to put up with it into the winter. An example of our tax money “not” at work.
