The Daily Maze
My little town has become a maze of closed roads and construction projects. We're getting new water mains. the water company says we need them, and I trust its judgement. I'm just waiting for the hike in the water bill to pay for them.
No good comes without a little suffering. Just about every street my neighborhood, and the surrounding neighborhoods is ripped up. Closed during the day, poorly patched at night. It's a real mess. There is dirt, dust and mud on rainy days.
There seems to be no rhyme or reason to where they work. Our street gets a lot of attention for a few days. The crews go away and work somewhere else. They return for more visits. I'm not a utility worker, or a construction guy, or one who knows how to install pipe, so I assuming there's a reason for the weeks of hodgepodge.
It has me looking forward to winter and the end of construction season. I just hope all the lines are in and the streets are repaved before the snow flies.
