They actually got done with the Cades Cove repaving faster than they had estimated which is one of the few times I have ever seen that happen with a government project. I think the reason was if I am not mistaken the park was offering some kind of bonus to the company for each week or day ahead of schedule they got done. That seemed to do the trick. I take it the same approach was not done with the roaring fork project. I hiked up to LeConte via Bullhead trail in May and there were lots of dump trucks carrying loads in and out of there working on construction then but not sure how far in they had made it.
