I'd make a joke about cars mocking each other, but I'm sure a mod is going to fix the typo.

They're replacing a major sewer line on a busy street near me. Since they can shut down half of the road at once and not impact anything, they'll finish way ahead of schedule. They're also trying to get a realignment done at the same spot at the same time (but that may not happen as that side of the project isn't shovel ready like the sewer was)

Make hay, or so they say.

Now is a good time to do repairs to the major highways around here. Maybe repave 495 heading into the Lincoln tunnel.

Yeah, this is 100% the best time to get these kinds of projects done. Especially because roadwork is outdoor work, and also doesn't have anywhere near as much crowding as a lot of other jobs. Social distancing will probably be pretty easy to set up for them.

I was thinking the same thing here in illinois.  Construction is a pretty social distancing job anyways when it comes to road repairs, and it keeps people employed and making money.  I'd be all for them to do all planned road repairs now.

Good. Construction can move twice as fast, or more, when a road can be closed.

Create jobs and take advantage of the empty roads. Take a $trillion stimulus and fix all the old bridges.

You might think so, but crews often work pretty close together and do socially stupid things when they aren't at work. You never see soap at the porta-potties and seldom hand sanitizer either.

Don't count your chickens. This is New Jersey construction we're talking here. They could just as easily be two months late instead of three, and "only" 50% over budget.

"Pennsylvania transportation department officials halted road construction on March 17, but officials restarted 61 "emergency and critical" projects on March 31."

Meaning all roads leaving the state.

Good. The economy needs every bit of stimulus it can get right now. The more people working, the better it is for everyone. Those workers will continue to have a purpose in their lives, plus they can feed their families in these uncertain times.

Biatch some more.

I bet you were pissed when it looked like the stimulus bill wouldn't pass. Now that the stimulus bill passed, you're pissed. Biatch, biatch, biatch,, and biatch some more, it really helps things.

If they moved to 24/7 work, there would be more shifts. Then the same number of people could be employed, but fewer people could work on each shift, allowing more opportunities for social distancing while working.

It isn't like these people are working closely in a small closed in office, they are in wide open spaces with plenty of room, and can spread out quite a lot.

Yeah, sweet. People doing high fives and fistbumps are just idiots, that has nothing to do with the farking fact that ROAD work construction projects have a lot more separation between the people than a bunch of guys working in a building.

As soon as they move to 24/7, then other people start biatching about the noise. Me? Having lived in AZ for 22 years, night construction is no big deal and you get used to it. When it's 115 degrees outside, it's best to work after the sun goes down. But people like to complain, so they'll complain about the noise. If the roads don't get fixed, they'll complain about the roads. And if the construction people lose their jobs, the same people will complain about that.

ftfa: 'the American Road and Transportation Builders Association showed only a few states were stopping road construction due to coronavirus concerns and some were accelerating them.'

Interesting how some states came to the opposite conclusion re: road work.
