For anyone who has been riding on bumpy Route 5 in Lovell Village, as well as on the way to Fryeubrg, the arrival of the paving crew was met with cheers. There were several weeks of prep work which included new culverts and re-ditching the sides to improve drainage. So it was very impressive to watch the crews do their work in a very short period of time.
The new layer of asphalt appears to be as thin as a pancake and folks are wondering how long it will be before the first bump appears. That bump may arrive before the snow comes but, for now, I'm enjoying the smoooooth ride!
