If Sisyphus worked for the state DOT

Maybe he would have spent a few years and $95 million getting rid of a stop light in Parksville. Times Herald-Record editor Barry White is sick of the endless construction:

How do you get rid of a light and grade crossing in a hamlet that has long suffered the effects of the bygone Borscht Belt era?

The state’s answer is to spend a small fortune to cut into a mountain, build a four-lane highway over a hillside with 13 new bridges, and rehab five others over a 2.8-mile stretch.

Personally, I think you could have given all the merchants left in Parksville $1 million each, take down the light, leave the exit and build a viaduct over the Quickway.
