  1. So….. with all this being said, where actually is the closure???? If you publish this, give specifics!

  2. It would be very useful if the agency providing road closure and rerouting information would also provide a map showing the construction area and the diversion routes for traffic. Most people are visually oriented and find that a picture is much easier to understand than a list of route numbers and street names.

    • I completely agree. I really need to know the exact location of the closure because I live on 494 and will need to know if I’m directly affected so that I can adjust the time that I need to leave my home to go to work every morning.
