America gets first musical road

Workers have begun carving grooves on the first 'musical road' in the
United States, which will produce notes of the William Tell Overture when
cars drive over them.

The high desert city of Lancaster north of Los Angeles placed the grooves
on another road, Avenue K, last month for a Honda commercial.

The quarter-mile strip was engineered to play the notes - better known as
the theme for The Lone Ranger - when motorists hit them at 55 mph.

The city paved over that first stretch two weeks later after neighbours
complained the noise was annoying and kept them awake.

The city, however, received hundreds of calls praising the road and
decided to retain the concept. They decided to recreate the road in an
industrial area away from homes.
