Someone has a sense of humor about the ongoing construction in town.

Pastor Kim Ransom of Cornerstone Community Church wrote what everyone is thinking on his sign that fronts Bombardier Road, a main site of activity for the town’s sewer project. The work has been ongoing all spring and summer.

Ransom, a motorcycle driver, was beginning to feel hopeless at the roads’ conditions: “It’s time to start praying for this,” he said, laughing.

Many roads are still dug up and uneven, but it appears God listened: Paving finally began this week.

Water/Wastewater Superintendent Roger Hunt said paving on Bombardier and Middle roads, Railroad Street, Centre Drive and Villemaire Lane should be underway shortly. Paving should be done by October 11, Hunt said.

Crews are also fixing sidewalks and driveways. Drivers should still seek alternate routes and expect potholes, traffic pattern changes and temporary road closures.

“We’re trying to mitigate the hazards as best we can,” Hunt said.
