The I-95 Asphalt Blues

That's the tune I've been humming for weeks now as Maryland repaves the interstate between Baltimore and Washington. If I'm lucky I get up to Columbia from Washington just before the traffic cones start going up to close off two of four lanes for this necessary evil. If not, I just settle back and try not too let too many X!@#$ cut in front of me :).

According to the Sun, state highway officials said they expect the double-lane closures to end about mid-September. "Single-lane closings will continue through mid-November as the contractor performs such tasks as replacing topsoil at the road's edge," the newspaper says.

I was singing your song last night as my wife and I were driving back from NY. I don't use that stretch of 95 too often so I wasn't expecting it. It was pretty wretched.
