They should have started last fall when Tioga Pass is closed. They'd have most of the road to themselves without any traffic to worry about. The same would have worked in the spring. Most of the road was snow free, and traffic free, for most of the winter.

No can do.

When laying asphalt, the ambient temperature has to be above a certain temp for the asphalt to set correctly. When I was in college, I worked on several road crews during the summer. IIRC, the ambient temperature needed to be 45ºF or higher.

Much of the time frame I mentioned the temps would be above what is required.
