since 1983!

Sorry for the non-posting day. Here's a question I pondered for quite awhile during today's thirteen-hour drive to Franklin: how is it possible that part or all of Interstate 40 in West Memphis, Arkansas has been under construction for 24 consecutive Decembers?

Your thoughts/answers/updates on when/if it will ever end would be appreciated.

Just look at it as supporting the Arkansas economy. I'm not sure how many people in that part of the state work for the highway department, but it has to be a high percentage since they are always working on that road!
