The second, again relatively successful rerouting of traffic is through the Crosstown/62 and 35W interchange construction project. This is a huge undertaking, long overdue, and will continue for quite some time. One is never quite sure from day to day how one will be routed through the maze, but DOT figures a way to make it work.
Our DOT takes a lot of heat, incredible criticism most of the time. I'd just like to say, they do some things well. Their ability to move snow is unsurpassed. Watching snowplow drivers do their job is like watching an art form: efficient and beautiful. Next time you are driving and the plows are doing their tandem snow removal, instead of getting frustrated, position yourself behind them and watch the show - it is truly fantastic!
