Let's bitch about construction

What are the things that puzzle, enrage, delight and tickle you as you go about your life in Madison?

Let's bitch about construction

Postby bdog » Mon Apr 29, 2013 10:44 am

As JJ said, guns have little to do with our day to day lives in Madison.

But not construction!

I hear they are starting on Mineral point / Junction rd. What a clusterfuck that will be! Where will son of clusterfuck be as people try to avoid papa clusterfuck?

Clusterfuck!

It can't be any worse than the Beltline and Fish Hatch, and we've been dealing with that clusterfuck for about 10 years, I think.

Blame Epic. They are ruining the Far West side.

My favorite is East Doty at 1 lane between 4- 5 PM when the cops let the traffic out of the office buildings and the asshole train goes through at rush hour.

Since when is Fish Hatchery and the Beltline the "far west side" and why did you capitalize "far west"

Also, Epic is 12 miles away from that interchange. That was an idiotic insinuation. I guess we should just blame all construction on Epic.

All of that is going to look like kids playing with Tonka trucks in a sandbox compared to the four-year situation at Verona Road and the Beltline.

If they really wanna have some fun, they should just do construction on University, Johnson/Gorham, the Beltline and Mineral Point Road all at the same time.

Don't think that that hasn't crossed their minds.

The whole idea is to get people trapped downtown so they can't leave and have to stay in hotels.

Oh, I forgot about the Johnson Street construction.

Just looked at the plans - I wonder how the snowplow drivers feel about all the bumpouts....
