    Default Major Road Construction

    Dont know if the rest of the countries highways are under construction but in the DFW area theres 15 major highway construction projects going on right now, most of my job is on-site at hospitals so I'm spending a lot of time stuck in traffic between accounts.
    Theres 4 interstates through the DFW area and countless state highways and everyone of them is getting a new interchange at the same time.
    Unfortunately my office is located less than a quarter mile from the two largest projects and unless I want to drive 25 miles out of the way I have no choice but to drive right through the middle of it during my daily commute. I did manage to change my work schedule so I'm not traveling during rush hour but I'm still stuck in traffic at 8:00 in the evening, just not as much.
    Are other parts of the country undergoing this much construction right now?

    ever try 264? you almost need an suv. i have been from coast to coast in this country and 264 is a road that i feel is flat out dangerous to drive on.

    They got federal highways dollars for big "shovel-ready" type projects that started coming on January 1st, I think. So now that we're into the heavy sunlight days, they're building and repairing like crazy.

    Three more highways started construction here and 7 state roads. Also 3 links to transit trains, whih also dig up roads and cause massive delays.
    I love the ten guys leaning on a shovel or rake and two that are being held up by a stop sign as three walk around in Slacks and shirt and tie with a clean hard hat on.

    Most of the construction started before Jan 1 up around Grapevine (114) and I-35/820, this is all Texas Tollway commission money.
    Starting next year you wont be able to drive around 121, 183, or 114 in the Fort Worth and HEB area without paying tolls.
    Yep our fine friends at the Texas tollway commision have found a new place to raid our pockets, time for a new Governor and senators if their gonna allow this to happen to the citizens.
    THey wouldnt dare put a tollway in south Dallas, John Wylie Price would be all over them.
