I was at the Gap this weekend. The new pavement is awesome except there is alot of gravel on the road in the turns. There were several hundred Miatas in the region though. Urbanites that can't drive digging out the ditches for the Park Services. When the gravel gets cleared out the road will be great. Hwy 28 south of Fontana dam has fairly new pavement that is pretty damn awesome too. The crap between the Gap and Fontana is the same though.
