Regarding Route 15 Montgomery Pike, first of all, I would like to commend the men and women who worked on the latest project. I travel this roadway everyday to and from work. At times there were some inconveniences over the past few years, but all and all they worked hard to keep traffic moving and did and excellent job making this roadway safer. I do believe the Sun Gazette should do a story on the history of this stretch of road. A few weeks ago someone posted a picture I believe that was from the 1930's and showing a view of down the mountain and the Mountain tavern, the road was all dirt at the time. This stretch was an engineering marvel to pass thru the pike as it did. Also it would be good to know if this was the final phase of this project or is there more to do yet. Thanks again to the roadworkers and our elected officials that obtained the funding as I am sure this will save lives.
