Is anyone else bothered by the 24/7 noise from Rolling Stone Gravel?? I can understand daytime work but all night is a bit much for those of us who need to get some sleep to go to work or school. Just wondering if anyone else is noticing.
Are you sure it's not the railroad project? I heear them banging around at night.
I did hear that it was related to the railroad project and that the owner oF Rolling Stone put out some sort of apology in advance for the night time disturbance until the job is done. I guess we just suffer and they make all the money? They should at least offer us all a free load of gravel.
If you think this is bad, wait until the pile driving begins. THAT is not going to be pretty, but I'm hoping we've gotten the message across that there needs to be some quiet hours in there for people to get their rest.
MY concern with Rolling Stone is the tendency for trucks to go ahead and pull out into highway-speed traffic. That isn't all of them; methinks one or two drivers are the ones guilty of this.
Does anyone know if the office down at the bridge site open yet? Thanks.
I think that the noise is a small price to pay for flood waters to be kept out of the basements next spring. We should be thanking Rolling Stone!
We will still have hydrostatic flooding; that's how the ground works in this area. Look no further than how Moose Creek flooded in 2008.
This is NOT a flood control project. It's bank stabilization of the Tanana for the bridge project. Please keep that straight.
The flood control project was abandoned years ago, because the Army COE concluded that effort would cost more than the property values that it supposedly would protect. They soaked up $150K of a $1M federal grant we were given to tell us that in 2004.
Gotta love it. Thank Rolling Stone for what? They're enjoying our tax dollars. They should be thanking US.
to mds: Right, it is not a flood control project..it will protect the Ak RR bridge...it will also protect some of the homeowners along the upper stretch of the Tanana River that have flooded from the Tanana River rising, especially at break up...it will not prevent high groundwater, nothing will keep groundwater from rising. As to Rolling Stone...right, it is a business, they are in business to make money, a business pays taxes and employs people that pay taxes... both the employer and the employee contribute to the economy of the area, borough, and state. People that do not work do not contribute to the economy...they rely on those who do work or those that own a business to pay their way. Sorry, you can see that I am all for productivity, our nation was built on this...some have forgotten that.
Yep agree on the circular reasoning. My maternal family had folks who were also on the Oregon Trail.
Doesn't mean I feel compelled to be thanking Rolling Stone, unlike the other individual. It's not where I'd like to see my tax money going, but I'm just someone else busting butt so others can remain on welfare. What a country.
It would be more accurate for you to say you're not sorry btw. ;-)
Enyhoo,now we get to hear what some pile-driving will sound like this week; funfun. Keep some earplugs handy folks!
