I wasn't able to attend tonight's Road Informational session, but speaking of roads, have you noticed how poorly Holland Street ( a State road) has fared after last years repaving? It may improve a bit after the spring thaw is over, but lets compare that work to Old 109 and Lee Road which were ground up and then repaved. Both those town roads held up very well over the winter and so far during frost heave season. An expensive option to be sure, but its one of those pay me now or pay me later situations. Holland Street will be just as bad as it was before repaving in just a few years if not sooner and the five mile stretch to Center Sandwich must have cost a pretty penny.
I wasn't always sold on this, but the results of a larger investment up front is obvious: this course over the long haul will save taxpayers money. Cosmetic fixes like what occurred on Holland Street and Bean Road may be good for politicians looking for votes to return to Concord, but in the end it seems a waste of money.
