Road Construction: Crescent St

On my weekend walk around Franklin, the sidewalks and base coat for the reconstructed road are almost done. Given the standard practice that Franklin has used, the road will remain like this until spring when the final asphalt coat will be applied.

Fallen Hero - PFC Marshall Rollins
Coincidentally, Crescent St is the location of one of the Fallen Heroes signs that was covered here recently. PFC Rollins was in the 4th Marines Division and died from wounds received on Iwo Jima. My father was also in the 4th Marines and was one of the lucky ones to have walked off Iwo Jima.

If you missed the Fallen Heroes series you can find the collection here
