Hopefully this will help with the pigs also.

It was fine how it was. Maybe some cut back in blind spots, now all the ugly vegetation will need to be maintained. Will DOT personnel do it? Lets see! Better places the $ could of been spent!

Looks awesome and improves safety and visibility, particularly during heavy rains.

    I, personally preferred that the vegetation between the incoming and out going lanes be thick. It is easier to drive without the oncoming cars’ lights shining at me.
