This is one of my favorites in the Explore Provo strips. The road work on University Avenue was done in rolling four block sections, and each block was at a different stage of construction. When one was complete, the crews moved on to the next one. They got so good at the process that the project was ahead of schedule and under budget. The project was extended another mile and still was within the budget and time frame.
What I like about this cartoon is that it sums up the project in a single strip. That's just how it worked.
