Those roads should be repaired at some point, so that will be a permanent improvement eventually. It's what the bonding money was for.
Temporary inconvenience - permanent improvement.
Several of our twp. gravel roads near my camp that were always a problem after spring thaws, are now pretty good as a result of repairs after the gas traffic tore 'em up.
All those seasonal soft spots were dug up and filled with crushed limestone, not gravel. None are still problem areas now in the spring, including two on the road past my camp that were like tank traps each spring.
We had lots of traffic while the drilling/fracking was going on, now all gone. When they moved fracking fluid from a well about a mile away, to the well about a half mile down the road, that was a pain. Was at camp for most of a week then and they were up and down the road constantly, well past midnight a few times.
Two things they did, worked out okay: The trucks drove slowly and they kept the road brined the entire time, to hold down the dust.
The only other thing that annoyed the residents, were when they fracked the wells. Incredible amount of noise 24/7 during that process, but it only lasted for a few weeks and then things went back to normal again.
I only got to hear about three days' worth of that racket, but my cousin's wife was fired up about that all summer.
'Course it doesn't take much to get her riled up anyway, but my cousin is apparently used to it after 43 years?
