  • How true. I drove through a work zone in the Illinois side of St. Louis and encountered around seven miles of barrels and cones limiting traffic to one lane in the direction I was traveling. Why? An IDOT (you nailed those guys) crew was working on a bridge railing on a fifty-foot long bridge. Well, actually two people were working and around seven more were standing around.

  • Oh, James, I would so love to have seen that video! Love your attention to detail - what other blogger would go to the trouble to delve into the exciting reading of the gov't manual on traffic control??

    Better watch out - They'll put you on some sort of government watch list!
