Roses are red, violets are blue, now you can drive on Route 42

A stretch of Route 42 in the town of Lexington, which has been shut down for nearly six months because of damage from the Irene and Lee floods, re-opened this morning -- no doubt to the great delight of Lexington's 805 residents.

Chris Dwon, Lexington's deputy town clerk, told the Watershed Post that the road re-opened around 10am this morning.
