During World War II, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built a supply route known as the Alaskan Highway. Construction began on March 8, 1942, and its conclusion came on Oct. 28, 1942 (10 months).
Ten thousand men created a 1,700-mile road through some of the harshest terrain on the planet — 10 months to build 1,700 miles of road though the wilderness.
By contrast, the Monocacy Boulevard project started 24 months ago and has yet to complete 3,550 feet of road.
My question to the mayor, Frederick city government and Milani Construction: How can you be anything but embarrassed and humiliated by this abject failure?
