    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.

    I hate road construction when it is done during the day time. Night is ok.

    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?
