new asphalt

The paving between mile 13.6 and 11.8 has been completed and gravel shoulders installed. All that remains is for the new striping to be added. There are also new sections at 19.5, the Route 28 bridge (hurray! a few less kerCHUNKs), and over Broad Run at 24.5; the last fixes the slump that filled much of the west bound lane.
