    Saw this today at 72 on the way to Woodmansie. Not sure how far they are paving.

    There will be waves in that hill in no time from the sand trucks :D but it does look like they are putting down 2 layers; dropping off the edge of the asphalt will be like dropping into the Grand Canyon ;) I'll be out that way tomorrow and will test it.

    Crossing Rt72 at that intersection always scares me, I always look both ways more than once. IDK ...probably just me. Its that bridge. Saw some nasty accidents there

    I was there on the bridge today. Almost pulled out in front of a car on 72.

    I just shut my eyes and floor it at the top of the hill. Have not had any trouble yet.

    PS: coming east from Chatsworth, I always creep across to take one final look to see if I may have missed any westbound traffic behind the concrete support.

    I parked right along the inside of the fence along 72 and when leaving I backed up the sandy road slightly. When pulling out I almost pulled out in front of a car passing under the bridge. Jessica yelled to me to stop or I would have been at fault.

    Hopefully they realized it needs to be wider at the east side of 72 outlet. If a vehicle is at the stop sign, and a sand truck is turning onto Pasadena, it's tight and dangerous.

    I usually look both ways more than once at every intersection. Judging by the way most people drive.... probably it’s just me. :D

    Hopefully they're fixing that intersection, I agree, it's definitely tough to see around the concrete supports. Earlier this year I was driving there pretty late and there was a really bad accident, I just hoped everyone involved was alright, the cars were bad though. The pavement isn't terrible, but it's NJ, so all of our roads could always use a good fixing lol

    They paved just the hill to Rt72.

    That does make it seem it is for the trucks.

    That was done when they paved all of Pasadena from 539 to the rr crossing/county line. It appears county related as, except for the 72 intersection, Savoy was not touched.
