The old road has pot holes. On the lower right corner the construction workers and sitting and standing around eating lunch. In the distance a town/city is visible. Beneath the raised road are electric poles and wires, and signs informing the public of the project. Black birds are sitting on the wire. The sky is blue and cloudless.
