WTF?

Tear it up and wait a month and spread a bunch of dust. Head east and sunrise and you can't see an eighth of a mile from the dust.

This would bring big fines in the people's republic of Clark County, SO WHAT IS THE HOLD-UP?

Isn't it nice that we dont live in the socialist soviet republic of Clark County? Much rather have the dust than big brother with a dust-o-meter over me.

This is Pahrump, we dont rush, the job will get done, fear not.. it just wont be done fast enough for the new Californians who move here, and in the mean time they will whine and complain.

Just this afternoon I noticed that there was some water sprayed on the dirt. Who is doing the work or lack of work?

County is trying to maintain it until the NDOT selected company can get the "mix" right.

Call NDOT and complain, they picked the company and they decide what the "mix" is. They can't seem to get it right. It is out of the county's hands and has been. NDOT picked the road and the contractor.

According to the road dept. at the commissioner meeting yesterday (that you obviously didn't attend) it will be done this month. Apparently NDOT changed their mix spec again.

But the rumors are cute.

Wasn't the company that won the low bid out of California? I heard also the road work will be delayed until 2011. What gossip line were you in at Smiths Larry? lol

Sorry Larry, I am right. The company for Homestead is out of Vegas, the CA. company is to do the regular chip seal, that will not start until next year. Try attending meetings or keeping current.

Hey Larry, why not tell the PVT they are wrong also ? Here I did your homework for ypu.

"Gamebird road paving is delayed

On one major project that is taking place this year — the reconstruction of two miles of Gamebird Road — the paving has been delayed again due to problems with the contractor still not getting the proper mix design for the Nevada Department of Transportation, said Dave Fanning.

The Pahrump chip sealing program won’t begin until next April, as an out-of-town contractor doesn’t want to mobilize and demobilize equipment in the fall and spring, Nye County District Road Supervisor Jared Ward told county commissioners Tuesday.

Commissioners awarded a contract on Aug. 3 to Valley Slurry Seal, of West Sacramento, Calif., which submitted the low bid of $1.3 million, a $142,394 savings over the $1.445 million quote turned in by the usual chip seal contractor, Wulfenstein Construction of Pahrump."

Guess what DH - I am not a Californicator and have been in Pahrump for 19 years. The dust doesn't bother me as my house isn't on Gamebird....yours must not be either.
