    Why repave good roads the same as bad roads?

    Ever scratch your head and wonder why something is being done? I had such an experience recently. I was traveling down South Road in Groton the other day, and as I approached the Groton-New London Airport, I discovered a mile stretch of Tower Avenue along the airport where the asphalt had been completely ripped up where new asphalt will be applied.

    What confused me was that the stretch of road along the airport was in perfect condition — no potholes, no cracks, no damage whatsoever. Who in their right mind would rip up a perfectly good road to have it replaced over again? What department would authorize such a project knowing it was not necessary? I can’t imagine the wasted taxpayer’s money to complete this section of road. There must be something important that I am not aware of behind this work.

    Further down the road from the railroad tracks going west down High Rock Road to Poquonnock Road, the same was also being done. But this section of the road is desperately in need of replacement and is completely justified in my opinion.
