Paving America with your money

I was happy to see that our state was able to get the relatively cheap $500 signs for our local American Recovery and Reinvestment Act paving project, unlike some of the other states. On my ride to Peterborough, I was greeted with this.

At least half of my ride was smooth sailing.

The signs cost $500 apiece in Maryland and New Hampshire, $1,700 in Georgia, $2,000 in Pennsylvania and New York, and $3,000 per project in New Jersey.

Our Senator Judd Gregg railed on a bit about this on a ABC News Video spot in spite of getting bargain priced signage. Geez!

I love the smell of fresh asphalt in the morning… it smells like “Recovery”.

  1. What you don't realize is that the left side of the road (the repaved side) is now reserved for members of Congress. The right side is for everybody else.

    So are the signs in New Jersey 5 times better than the signs in New Hampshire? They must be some great signs man.
