This iReport is part of an assignment:
Honda Civic Musical road. Lancaster California
Honda Civic Musical road. Lancaster, California
This is a road on avenue K in between 60th and 70th street east. It was paved with grooves in it as to play the William Tell Overture. Possibly better known as the Lone Ranger theme song. This road is the only road of it's kind in the United States. One of only four in the world. Two being in Japan and one in Korea.
A few neighbors of the road have complained. And it has been slated to be paved over. I've heard the city is thinking of paving another musical road somewhere else in the city.
Everyone I have talked to loves this stretch of road and can't get enough of it. Traveling over it multiple times a day! Keep in mind this is in a somewhat desolate part of town. Out of the way of any businesses, schools etc. Surrounded by mostly desert and a few scattered houses
There are many videos of people who love this road on Youtube. Honda will also be coming out with a commercial filmed on this road shortly.
I believe this city needs this road more then anything. It is really a saddening place to live. The only thing going for it is its short distance from Los Angeles.
I'm not sure this IReport will help at all to spread the news of this road.
I hope the city or Honda will build a new one. As I believe, it was sadly paved over earlier today.
