Re: NID project at Greenhorn

If there were a popularity contest held in the Greenhorn Road area, I don’t think that Nevada Irrigation District would do very well these days.

They might have considered the impact of their project on local traffic and posted signs informing us of what disruption was coming our way and how long they expected it to last.

The way it was handled, though, no one warned us of the messy and inconvenient delays ahead of time. And why couldn’t the work have been completed before the school busses were running again?

My sympathy goes out to those folks who are along the road from Hollydale/Downwind to Brunswick; the dust in those homes must be a real pain. Some complain that the noise of cars traveling over the heavy metal plates keeps them awake constantly. How’d you like to deal with that in your frontyard?

Too bad, also, that one of our large, beautiful cedar trees that line this drive got “in the way” of a giant piece of metal equipment. There are ways to protect trees during construction; look at the construction projects in Truckee. It’s a requirement!

What kind of condition will NID leave this roadway in when they are done? It wasn’t too long ago that it was completely repaved and in perfect condition. Please tell us that you aren’t going to add insult to injury with a gargantuan patch-job.
