The long trek to a wider road

Chuck Gaffka operates a thermal buggy as he puts a layer of hot plastic over the lines and arrows on the newly widened Tampa Road in Oldsmar, while Eugene Drain keeps an eye on him from inside a truck cab. The men are part of the Advance Barricade & Signing Inc. crew that finished the project Monday. The road work, which began on June 24, 1996, was delayed by rain and disputes between the contractor, Oldsmar and the Florida Department of Transportation.
