Only Two Seasons

Here in Wisconsin we have two seasons, Winter and Road Construction.

Well, winter is over.

What I want to know is who is the city or state officail making the decisions about the constuction. I know I would recognize them because their head will be firmly in place in their ass.
I mean come on dude! A toddler could do a better job of moving traffic. Does it really make sense to have five or more exits that go into downtown shut down? Or what about taking all three southboubd lanes and having them all get off the freeway and drive through one of the busiest streets instead of finding a way to keep at least one lane open? And the fact that it's taking as long as it is taking is stupid. If I wanted to live like this I'd move to Boston!

My guess is that the person behind all this doesn't even live here.

The rotten bastard.

And hey! What about that pot hole at the end of my street you self absorbed jerk!
Not only is it hard to get around, it's espensive too.

On the upside, for the first time in a long time a tank of gas costs more than a carton of cigs....

It's all part of an evil plot. The construction companies are owned secretly by the people who control the oil supply, and because they want to raise the price of crude, and therefore gas, one of the best ways to do this is to create traffic congestion.

In fact, the conspiracy goes right back to city planners. In most places the structure of traffic lights and roads is designed to slow people down and stop them routinely.

Have to say this about the city of Red Deer. The traffic lights are designed that if you drive the speed limit, once you hit the first green you can sail from pretty much one end of the city to the other without hitting a red. And the oil-loving provincial government is still asking how someone with a brain got put in charge there.
