Before the snow comes, you might want to take a little tour up Century Drive and see the results of your tax dollars at work.

 

Peter Murphy with ODOT says today was the final day of new paving on the road and it's a super smooth ride.

"Basically, the heavy lifting is over, and that means the smooth ride that people have been promised and have been waiting for, for some time, well, it's here and it's going to last us for, we hope, another generation, because that's how long the current surface has been there, so, it's a very smooth drive. I don't know if anybody's been up that way recently, but the drive going up Century Drive is one of the better drives in town now. So if you have the opportunity to get up there while we have this great weather, go ahead."

 

Murphy says the project came in on time and pretty close to budget at $10-million.  And he adds that he hopes more people will use all weather tires and not studded tires during the winter, so the road will be preserved for a longer time.
