Will the road be open on Nov. 12th, as the electronic sign once read or have there been more delays? I’m so ready for it to be open. Driving during the work/school rush hour has not been fun.
Tell me about it Ashley, according to so many (Real Crozet)…it should be no problem, just an extra minute or two …right? I will be surprised if it is done by 2011.
What should be no problem? Opening on the 12th of November? Let’s hope!
Jim, just to clarify, no hills were flattened in the paving of JGR. Lots of big old trees were taken down, which is what opened up the view. It’s still got all the same hills. And yes, it did open yesterday, the 11th!!
Thanks, Crozet Neighbor. You’re right; with the trees gone, it just feels flatter. 🙂
I think that on one (previously rather steep but short ) stretch the road has been smoothed out and the slope actually IS more shallow.
