I hate to be negative, but there has to be bigger issues to comment on. The traffic back up yesterday was one heck of a lot better than driving in the daytime of any big city. Besides, the crazies were confined to one lane.

In a rare non golf cart ride in the Villages I drove down Buena Vista Blvd. last week and couldn’t believe the county is wasting taxpayers money resurfacing the road. The section of road being resurfaced south of Lake Sumter would be considered one of the best, if not the best, road surfaces where our other home is up north. I guess when people spend enough time in Florida they get very soft and expect everything to be perfect? I have never seen any paved road in Florida that has anything that resembles a real tire/rim eating pothole. Drainage culverts are the closest thing Florida roads have to a pothole.

Does anyone know if the Morse Blvd. repaving will be done after Buena Vista is completed? There are bad areas from where the project was left off to 466A with the worst areas around Havana at Odell Circle.
