Default The road to Wildwood

I read in the "alternate newspaper" that they are close to completing the part of 466A that goes into Wildwood that has been closed for about 2 years. Said it will be open in April.
Any truth to this? Anyone know?

When I read the title of this thread I thought it might be about an upcoming movie. Then I remembered that Bob Hope is dead.

read some where that it's the same construction company that did the work on 441/27. How long did it take them to improve that highway?

BS....I'll believe it when I see it. They said there was a delay because of old power lines.......Sounds like only a week delay to me, not 2 years.

I go by almost every day and have never seen any evidence of anybody working on it,...not one truck, worker, shovel, etc.

Just for the record, the construction company doing this work is not government. Just sayin.

We take our dog down that road to have him groomed at Bone Crazy. Both in Feb and Jan there were workers there working on it. Slowly, but working nonetheless. Before that there was no work at all being done on it.

"Someone" said that the reason for the delay was the the final parcels of land had not been acquired until some time after the project was well underway.
