We have gutters

A key part of the construction of a subdivision is obviously the road that runs past out house. Today that road had gutters added.

The gutters are certainly a lot more curved at the intersection that I had envisaged in the 3D renderings I’d done. This is good, it’ll make the entry into our driveway much easier thanks to a less acute angle.
