The Ada County Highway District has smoothed out the rutted asphalt surface of Kootenai and Vista in record time and with minimal discomfort for motorists and businesses alike.
Working mostly at night, the crews were able to bring in the “anteater” pavement grinder, chew up the rough surface, recycle it with new asphalt, relay it, and paint stripes within just a few nights.
Problem now is a prime spot for “road shopping” has been eliminated. Those rough intersections and railroad crossings were ideal for shaking misplaced tools from under the hoods of cars.
The patio coffee wonks at Moxie Java will also have to seek a new source of entertainment as well–trailers full of junk and even residential windows often met loudly with disaster crossing the deep ruts.
