Repairing Eagan roads

These guys were resurfacing a side street off Galaxie Road after a long, cold, snowy, Minnesota winter. The City Daily Photo community theme day for June 1 is: Under Construction.

  2. I can almost smell the asphalt. A familiar scene in summer Minnesota, but I don't mind the obstruction to construction when remodeling or repairs are done, esp. on our winter-ravaged roads.

    My link to the portal for theme day photos does not work, hope you visit me anyway. That darn computer-voodoo is at work again!

  6. I guess this must get done frequently in your area because of all the snow and ice. Looks like a dirty job!

  7. I used to see this a lot when I was a kid. One of my favorite types of construction. That roller looks like so much fun! Great photo for theme day :D

  8. Nice capture today, Leif. I am all in favor of road repair. Winter does a mean job on the streets around here.

  12. Schön, dass Eagan Geld für die Sanierung von Straßen hat. Stuttgart hat leider nur sehr wenig Geld für so etwas. Dafür bekommen wir aber für mindestens 4.5 Milliarden Euro (es werden mehr, da können wir wetten) einen unterirdischen und untauglichen Bahnhof, den alte oder behinderte Menschen wohl nicht betreten können. Liebe Grüße aus Stuttgart. Stay on top - Oben bleiben.

  15. Perfektes Bild für Themenday! Das Problem haben wir hier in Berlin auch. Viele Strassen sind broken from the strong winter. Ich habe so gelacht über Deine Kommentar. Ja ich spiele auch mit! Mit einen Bild was ich ausgegraben(exhumed)habe.
    Schönen Abend für Dich!
