RE: Tongass Construction
By Cathy Geer

The stretch of road from the Post Office past Best Western is
getting worse, I agree.
I have thought of a solution, why doesn't the construction company
do some work at night? It might disturb the residents, but if
they wear earplugs, they would not hear the construction and
it might be over sooner. maybe not...
The core hours when people are going to work and driving home
is not the time to tie up the flow of traffic. The potholes have
been getting worse the past few days but no one has filled them
up. Have the past 4 days been their days off? How much more abuse
do our vehicles have to endure? This is costing us all time and
What is going on at the corner of Jefferson and Tongass? I realize
they must be working on the light, but why are there such gaping
holes? Where are the workers and what's the plan? Can't they
at least have smoother ramps on and off the construction zones?
I share your frustrations and I want our road fixed too.
I know . . . how about raising the tax a half percent??
As the Good Morning Fairy always says, "Have a Nice Day".
