Rt 376 at Red Oaks Mill: Re-repaving

For unknown reasons, NYS DOT milled away some of theĀ newly laid asphalt north of Red Oaks Mill:

Rt 376 Red Oaks Mill - New Pavement Milling

Rt 376 Red Oaks Mill – New Pavement Milling

Then laid it down again:

Rt 376 Red Oaks Mill - New Pavement - 2018-06-14

Rt 376 Red Oaks Mill – New Pavement – 2018-06-14

As far as we can tell, there’s absolutely no difference, other than the opportunity for a huge longitudinal crack between the shoulder and the travel lane.

My guess: the contractor shorted them an inch of asphalt, got caught, and had to do it over again.

It’s only NYS Bike Route 9, so you can’t expect much in the way of bicycle-friendly design or build quality.
