This comic from Toothpaste For Dinner pretty much sums up Ohio's relationship with road construction:
Seriously. It's exactly like that. And I don't know about other cities in Ohio, but here in Columbus we *never* have road construction projects that end in "will be reopened tomorrow." No, our construction projects go on for years and years at a time.
So needless to say, my commute won't be getting better anytime soon.
ETA:And based on that rendering, Project #5 would be the part of town I commute through, actually.
