Since it was only a one-day closure, I'd doubt it.

Cheers! M2

Well, drove down 151 at around 5:40am this morning and it was business as usual! I could see nothing changed due to yesterday's closure, so if anyone knows what they did please share!

Cheers! M2

HAHA! That's hillarious! The other day, I saw some guys working on a that bridge by Tezel and Culebra. Anyway, 2 guys were working/digging something and I swear there were about 5 standing around, leaning on shovels, talking to one another. I thought, "hmmm...I wonder why they say they don't have money to fix the roads???" Because they are paying extra workers who are "supervising" or whatever they were doing!

...the closing was due to an "aerial crossing". This typically means that CPS or some other utility is going to be working on overhead lines at that location. Specifically, it usually it means they're going to be stringing-up or taking down a line. This obviously means they have to close the entire roadway at that location.

Thanks for the insight, and if you can recommend how to score on of those 'sleeping weekends;' I'm all ears!

Cheers! M2

I needed to go to BAM and Target @ AR, so I went 151 home and had the perfect drive. Absolutely nobody pi$$ed me off and I was in this hole the whole time. Every time I would come up on someone they'd exit and the same with the people to my rear. I had my cruise on 68 and I actually averaged over 20 MPG on the trip and that's the high end for the truck.
Unfortunately, driving home on 1604 was far from perfect.

Hehehe... I have in infant in the house, so I actually didn't sleep the whole weekend, but I spent a lot of the daytime sleeping to make up for being awake at night.
