Gee,$2.2 million.
After one subtracts the amount needed to pay police details to direct traffic around the road construction, just how much will actually remain to do that road construction?
It's a good thing we got Liberal Democrat John Olver getting Stimulus money for Berkshire County.
$2.2 million, Wow!

Sounds like a good idea to me. Our roads are in pathetic shape compared to European ones, and tourists will be more willing to come and look at our beautiful scenery if they're not at risk of breaking a tie rod in a pothole, as I did once. I hope they include edges wide enough so bikes and cars can share the road.

It's the tax papers money not the Obama money. If the reports would start
telling the truth about where the money comes from maybe the taxes would come down.
