The city closed a road by my house. I understand road construction needing to be done. I also understand they may need to close the road in order to do it.
I don’t understand though why they need to close a road for 5 MONTHS for construction and I’m grumpy about it.
The part of the road that is closed is very short, but impacts so many people. It is a main road that leads to the highway, and is on the direct path to 4 schools including the two my kids go to. This means all the people trying to get to the highway are now on other smaller roads backing up all the people trying to get kids to schools. The alternate road being used also has train tracks that are used multiple times a day.
Lots of traffic, lots of waiting, lots of late people.
I would be okay with this except for the already mentioned 5 months. There’s got to be a better way.
