Michigan Construction Out of Hand
It's that time of year - Construction season in Michigan. Normally, we all expect it this time of year, but with the early Spring, the season has already gotten into full swing.
Have you been downtown on Fulton St. Between Monroe and Division? I have never seen so many orange barrels piled into one spot. At night you better know where you are going, otherwise get ready to mow 'em down.
Travels taking you to Kalamazoo? Plan some extra time. 131 has no less than 3 areas of construction - One just south of town, another near wayland, and get another south of that. I don't claim to understand it, but I'm not sure why you have to have 3 projects going on at the same time on the same 40 mile stretch of road.
Let's not forget too - with gas around $4 a gallon, this is costing us even more money.
The worst part - this is going to be going on all Summer long. It amazes me we can send a man to the moon in 1969, but we can seem to build a road that can last longer than 10 years... Rant Over!
