Is this person out of touch or what? I have lived in Oolitic, Indiana most of my life and driven Old State Road 37 and New State Road 37. I am 44 years old, watched new 37 as it was constructed and can say that this is the FIRST repaving of this road since construction. It has had concrete areas removed and repoured over the years, but these temporary repairs also deteriorated. Thank you INDOT and Gov. Daniels for giving the residents of Southern Indiana a nicer highway to travel on so that we can enjoy our trips North and South on State Road 37. Jeanette, do a little research before you weigh in next time.

Jeanette, I am so glad you don't dictate how our tax dollars are used. I have lived in this area all of my life. The drive between Bloomington and Bedford is not a comfortable one. The road seemed to ripple, and some of the ripples would make your car feel as though it would bounce into the other lane. If the weather was bad it was a horrible drive. It's about time the taxpayers down here got to see their dollars at work.
