There was some big excitement happening on Precita Avenue this morning, as I awoke to the thrilling spectacle of an asphalt scraper-flume thingy doing its asphalt-launching trick right outside my home.
At long last and after many months, it seems the Precita sewer replacement and repaving project is finally nearing completion.
The asphalt scraper-flume thingy is a real monster. Properly speaking, it’s called an asphalt milling machine. It’s a giant beast on tank-like tracks that looks as if it should be operated by Jawas, and it makes a throaty roaring sound that says “Your Tax Dollars at Work!”
All motorists, cyclists, and skateboarders who regularly traverse the Precitaville Administrative Region are excited for our namesake roadway receive its final layer of fresh asphalt. Smooth at last! Smooth at last! Yay, infrastructure!
