We have road construction like crazy in our metro area right now. One of the 2 companies that are currently working on the roads, is actually trying to do the work at night when there are no one on the roads, yet the other company isn't getting the hint to do it at night.

Anyone else hate road construction?

They're literally rebuilding most areas of NYC and turning them into upscale neighborhoods, so i've gotten used to seeing construction :laughing:

I'd like if they did it at night. But most of them don't do that where I live. They do it starting from like 7am to 3pm. (This way they are done and gone by the time rush hour starts.)

The ones that do work at night... I'd like if they wouldn't close down such huge stretches of road at a time. Like they're working on an area that's about 3 miles long and they close the entire stretch down at a time. Not just the quarter mile they're actually working on... but the full stretch.

The road is torn up about 2 blocks from my house. Bad thing is it's right in front of a school. School starts back up here on Wednesday so they need to hurry up and get it all finished before they have to deal with all the school traffic.

Wow, they could've have picked a worse time to do that.

Road works are famous in the UK. Always around always digging up holes. Got them across my road and also 1mile down the road. What's an pain that they dig it up then fix it then weeks later they dig it up again. They just finished building 50 homes across me and still doing the road up.

On the movie Falling Down, they have a scene where the anti-hero (Michael Douglas) blows up a road construction site out of frustration. The logic being the company has been working for years seemingly doing nothing or doing things at too slow a pace. Anyway, who has seen that movie?

I am now hating our local road construction more. The road construction is now on literally all of the roads going in and out of our town. :neutral:

I haven't seen a road construction in a years, although they were always blocking off some road or diverting you in the UK.

In my neighborhood we have construction on a mosque that's been happening for years. Now on the right side of my street, they're building a new middle school. Across from the mosque, a new apartment building sprung up rather quickly. Across from my building, they're building a new 3 family house. So to the OP, tell me about it. o_O:D

Right now, there's major roadworks just round the corner from my house where for that one particular road, two side streets are closed off on each side and lots of diversions around. Thankfully I didn't travel down there... just observed it as I was passing.

In general though, roadworks are a major inconvenience.

This thread could have been titled Seattle, seriously. :eek:

Yeah we have it all the time and it’s annoying. Night time is just as annoying because the people who live nearby are kept up all night by loud beeping and shrill grinding noises from the street.
