turning lane

April 17, 2010 Leave a comment

More and more, it seems, cities and towns are bumping up against farmland. A couple years ago, I’m told, this used to be a poorly maintained two-lane county road. But a farmer sold his land to a developer, who built a few dozen suburban-style homes. And now there are street lamps and a turning lane.

Nothing new there, really. Before the poorly-maintained county road, there was a dirt road. And before that, probably a path of some sort. The new is always bumping into the old, and the old is always giving way. Everything turns.
