Maloney Road Repaving

The Wappinger DPW laid asphalt along Maloney Rd, from side to side and end to end (well, to the end of their jurisdiction at the Lagrange town boundary). We passed the crew putting down the first layer on the westbound side:

A few days later, they were doing the final layer on that side as we approached the Rail Trail entrance:

Sometimes, good things happen out there on the roads!

      They even raised the catch basin grates more-or-less to grade (although the parallel-bar slots remain lethal) and when the stripes go down it’ll be close to nirvana… [grin]

      We ride as much as we can, throughout the year, and we use Maloney a lot!

        A (rather-odd) coworker kept a photograph of the aftermath of his encounter with such a grate. Wern’t pretty. The bike didn’t look very good, either.

          The cast-iron grates have the new-ish parallel bar design, with three or four cross bars so you can’t drop a big bike wheel through the slots. Our 20 inch front wheels fit nicely, though: it’s a real tooth-clapper of a drop.
