My World Tuesday - New construction

Last week as I made a trip through Frederick I encountered this road block. So I stopped and took a few photos before turning around and taking another path to my destination. They have been digging a hole at this site for several months, so I was not surprised to see above ground work beginning.

The crane workmen were up top connecting the pieces as they were lifted in place. This is not a job I want to try.

A few days later the crane was ready for heavy lifting.

Road projects always take months here. Then they stop for a month, then they are back in the same place for more months. Drives me crazy. And when one drives by, it is difficult to discern that they are really doing anything. It looks like they are actually repairing improving in your area, at least!

That's one of the joys of living in rural OKlahoma, very few roadworks! COming from London it's a great joy!

interesting photos of that public works project...noticed prices for goods are less in your area than ours. i paid 1.67 for 87 grade gas today...still can't understand why price high again when the barrel price is low.

have a good week.
