Obamabucks hard at work. They've been repaving a 5 mile section of route 274 in Perry County that ABSOLUTELY did not need repaved! The daily traffic jam they needlessly create daily is enough to drive a sane person mad!

This is what I was getting at with my original post, I know there is always construction in PA somewhere - that has been the case for decades....

I guess I was asking, does it seem that more this year than ever, there is a lot more redundant work being done (as mentioned above), more "repair" work to stuff that was already repaired in the last couple of years, & where it seems like they are milking out the job to take a lot longer than it would normally take.

It seems that way to me. It seems like they are just doing a lot of things for an excuse to spend that "stimulus" money - and the taxpayer is getting the shaft for it.

Now that's just funny. PA takes FOREVER to do any road work. Not to mention that it seems they rent the asphalt stripper for a week in the early spring and tear up all the projects they will have for the summer. They then get around to repave each one when they can.
QFT.

PennDot needs to learn that you can't cone off an enormous section of road and then finish the job at your leisure from there on. I'm sure they won't, though; seems like PA roads are always under construction, and I don't see that trend changing anytime soon.

Moved from NJ a little over a year ago, and I'm floored by how long it take for construction projects to wrap up in PA. Rt 33 between 78 and Stroudsburg is a classic example.
