Default I heard a rumor. Avalon is finished?

Is it really true. Has the 10 year project concluded?

It's open right now, but, there are still barricades close to the road. Don't know if they're gonna pick them up. or close lanes again. It sure looks like they're done, but, I'm not in that business.

Its all 4 lanes now,they still have line painting to do but now the race will start Mon morn south bound to I10. The out road south bound from my neighborhood stinks but we do have a turn lane to get in if going south.

Good news. Drove down it this morning all 4 lanes open. Bad news nos it appears they are replacing the I-10 bridge over it. Damn you would think the dumba....would have coordinated them at the same time. Nevermind that would make to much sense.

I believe its gonna be 3 lanes from 29 to Avalon when its done. Good news is, they are over half done. Looks like same company who built the I10 bridge in 13 months!!!

To the white trash redneck in the POS camo-ed compact pickup truck behind me who had his head out of his window yelling at me while I was waiting to make a U-turn back to the north just before the red light south of the interstate, after exiting McDonalds and driving south past way too many no U-turn signs:

Screw you! Are you so stupid that you can't figure out how to go around me? Did you see my middle finger any of the times I gave it to you?

If you come out of the McDonalds, they've got it set up so that you have to drive all the way south past the interstate and get in the left turn lane for the eastbound on-ramp to make a legal U-turn.

That needs to be corrected. Ol' Cleophus T. McGill had to endure 15 seconds of inconvenience because of it.

I heard a representative from FDOT on the radio last week say they would be officially finished by the end of the month.
