The mess is over -- the road work on Strub Road near Milan Road (U.S. 250) is finished.
Perkins highway superintendent Allen Jackson confirms the work has been completed, and the stretch of road that had been under construction since early June is reopened.
"I've driven it today" to make sure, Jackson told the Register.
The work was expected to take 30 days but was completed ahead of schedule.
"They did a real good job," Jackson said.
