Hot damn! After five post-apocalyptic months of living next to the film set of “The Road,” it looks good.
Even if you did manage to dodge the potholes and crevasses and actually got on the road, you were in for neck-snapping, denture-rattling ride up or down the street. It’s sort of how I imagine driving is in Afghanistan.
Public safety and dental fillings aside, our street re-paving project is unique for another reason. It has swales. Uh huh, that’s what I’m sayin’. Swales
Webster’s New College Dictionary says a swale is a “low tract of marshy land.” Lincoln Street, not so much.
We’ll see about that.
That's when we’ll see whether the road to hell is paved with good intentions – or with swales.
