There will be delays for the next 18 months to two years while Route A between Washington and Union is improved. The work on the two-lane stretch of roadway will be a test of patience for motorists.

It is a somewhat unusual roadway. It was built in the days of the horse and buggies and when teams of horses pulling wagons were not unusual. Where possible it was built on high ground, along ridges, which was the practice at that time. High ground was used to take care of drainage problems. Homes and a few businesses were built close to the narrow roadway. Because of hills, curves and no shoulders to speak of, it was the scene of many accidents. At “dead-man’s” curve, accidents were a regular occurrence, especially on weekends. Speed and drinking caused many accidents.
