I can't imagine it'll take them till 2019 to finish paving Phase 1 unless they take a really long break. In three summer seasons (2010, 2011, 2012) they've gotten about half of it paved already. Assuming they don't stop for a while, they ought to finish by 2015 or so.

That said, Phases 2 and 3 will still be gravel even when Phase 1 is done (and Phase 2 contains the sketchiest sections of the TLH), and as of yet about half of Rt 389 from Manic 5 to Fermont is unpaved (also sketchy in sections).
