After one year and three months, we finally have our street paved, new curbs, sod between the curb and the side walk, and a new driveway apron.
Our town started out by replacing the 100-year old main sewer pipes, then it was the water pipes which finally let them to "encourage" the gas/electric company to replace their lines. The whole time, we lived on a dirt/gravel road.
For two summers, we have not been able to sit on our front porch or open our windows because the dust was crazy!
I think this weekend I will sit on the porch just for the hell of it.
