    Wonder if they'll ever come up with a project to raise that road bed?

    this morning 3 lanes were fine, then I came back from lunch about 2 hours ago and 2 lanes were left. Knew it was a matter of time, looks like I will be using the Hwy 65 bypass after work today

    It's a great mystery why they didn't raise the roadbed a few years ago when they redid the whole corridor by Grays Lake.

    Happy they spent all that time this spring on decorating the median.

    The city prefers spending thousands of dollars every summer redecorating/landscaping the median so it can be washed out the next spring when floods.
