A Road Paved With Stimulus $$$

From HoCoGov:

A Howard County construction project to mill and resurface a section of Little Patuxent Parkway between Maryland Route 175 and Columbia Road in Columbia is scheduled to begin on or about Sunday,August 15. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by Tuesday, August 31.

This section of Little Patuxent Parkway is eligible and approved for repaving under the federally funded American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA), signed by President Obama in February 2009. A portion of ARRA funds received by the Maryland Department of Transportation is reserved for distribution to county governments for Federal Aid eligible projects on county-maintained roads.

Construction will take place from 7 p.m. through 5 a.m. from Sunday, August 15, through Tuesday, August 31. Flagging operations will be in place to direct traffic as needed and variable message signs will be in place to advise motorists of the construction.

So am I the only person who saw absolutely nothing wrong with the old surface of Rt 175 ? This smacks of pork-barrel spending and full employment to me.

Plus it's Wednesay night and they aren't done yet, and it took me 20 minutes to make it from the mall to my house 2 stop lights away. Yeah, I'm pissed. I pay way too much taxes and spend way too much time in traffic. So there.
