My husband and I now have to travel through Hershey, PA once a week, our third trip. Last week I noticed this and yesterday I took a closer look. On Route 422 into and out of Hershey, the macadam or blacktop is actually brown. John agreed. It was obvious when a side road butted against the browntop which was blacktop. And again when the greytop (aged and faded blacktop) butted against the browntop. This was new paving on Rt 422. The town itself is not browntop, but I'll bet when it is replaced, it will brown. Interesting??? Wonder why they chose brown. There must be an abvious answer.
Of interest, the street light standards have either a silver or chocolate (brown) Hershey kisses on top. And several of the streets are named chocolate; i.e., cocoa, chocolate, etc. It really is a very pretty town. Milton Hershey was a wonderful man and his legacy lives on in this beautiful part of PA.
