Not only am I not seeing a wrapping up of the current road construction projects, they are still beginning new ones. I thought they were supposed to be done with these projects by now. After all, it could start snowing any day now. Road construction is annoying enough without dragging the season out as long as possible...I know its a necessary evil, but let's wrap it up guys...

You must have been on the Ohio Turnpike recently. smile

Many hardly even slow down except for me it seems. Slow down to 55 in a 50 work zone while others are going 75+. Not fun.

If Cal-Trans is involved there is no end date.

You're telling me it is supposed to finish at some point and not go on for entire lifetimes? That's not how we do road construction here in the great garden state. confused

In Pennsylvania, they are always working on the turnpike. They start at one end and work towards the other end of the state. Then turn around and head back in a neverending cycle.

People complain when thereís construction, and then people complain when there isnít construction and thereís pot holes and rough roads.

Canít win sometimes.

I've never seen them having ongoing projects during the winter months...I don't even know how that would work...how would pavement even setup during the cold?

I love when there's road construction, and then the massive dump trucks used to haul material in and out end up using surrounding roads and then tears up THOSE roads, making it necessary for the local govt to pay that company to fix more roads.

It's almost like a vicious cycle...
