Have You Watched the Paving?

The City of Vincennes has contracted for a number of blocks to be repaved and this time it looks like the city is trying to do it right. The workers are not just laying down asphalt over the old asphalt over the older asphalt, but first grinding off old pavement before putting on the new.
While that means there will be fewer blocks paved, the ones will will get the treatment will last longer. Sometimes you've just got to do it correctly. The City seems to get that tis time. It is too bad there isn't money to put in new curbs, but the City of Vincennes didn't win this week's $400 Million Dollar Powerball. Niether did I.
