Default Road resurfacing

The Admiral has been caught up in the resurfacing project on Buena Vista--wish someone would publish a notification on which lane & direction they're working on before you happen to get stuck

I think it's been published in The Daily Sun as well as having those electronic signs as well. Haven't driven that stretch recently but did see a flagman almost to the corner of B.V. and 466a this fore-noon...the south lane!!

Wonder who made the decision to pave during high season its a mess in all directions.
Night paving would have made more sense Not to mention public safety how will police, fire and EMS respond timely matter

Got it! It's going in the same chapter as "Shot Pouring". Some posters are getting their own chapter in the book.

I will make sure you get an advance copy and a "SMALL" percentage of the profits for all the help you have given me.

Somebody should develop an app that could tell us where all the traffic slowdowns are in real-time so we know which roads to avoid...wait, they already have. It's called Google Maps

I use the "WAZE" app and find it to be outstanding.

Suck it up, Buttercup. We all deal with the slight pain of having to sit in traffic. It'll be done in a day or two, and it'll be all good. And what's with the rank? No one cares.

Some people and their families need to take a chill pill.

I had to go from 466A all the way to Liberty Park on BV before being able to turn around, head south, and enter the Saint James gate. It was probably 15 minutes out of my way. Big deal if you've ever driven in a city.

Call Sumter County and ask why they chose the high season to resurface. It might be a temperature problem.

They have to spend it prior to the County's fiscal year end........it was budgeted in fiscal 2019/2020.



Also there is higher demand on road workers in a few months, so the County probably received lower bids this time of year.
