Step 1: Place signs every 10 feet along the side of a road saying no parking because construction starts on a certain date. Step 2: Two weeks after that date, tear up the road. Step 3: Leave road as dirt and gravel for over a week. Step 4: Maybe pave the road at some point?

(I’m salty because one of two ways out of my neighborhood is to turn into this road. Hopefully the city doesn’t grind the other way out into gravel before they re-pave this way.)
