Hampstead Bypass completed
Joy knows no bounds in Hampstean, where work on its long-awaited bypass is now complete, according to the State Highway Administration. A ribbon-cutting on the $83 million project, which carries Route 30 around downtown Hampstead, is planned Thursday -- with State Highway Administrator joining local elected officials for the festivities.
This is the project where the SHA employed goats to control vegetation and thus protect the endangered bog turtle. Instead of having a bunch of officials hack away with a scissors, wouldn't it be more fun to let the goats have a ribbon-chewing?
