It is friday and fridays are for fun. I understand the need for road construction but sometimes it seems like projects are coordinated in such a way that alternate routes all have some construction on them so that it takes a long time to go just a few blocks. This construction season is a big one especially downtown which is how it was last year and for all the many years they worked on building a light rail and other large projects. I wonder what it would be like to have every road and sidewalk in downtown St. Paul opened at the same time? Wouldn’t it be crazy if they opened all of the roads AND removed all the hoods from the parking meters?
