  •  Exactly! The whole premise is stupid (5+ / 0-)

    you don't completely alter traffic patterns to study "traffic". I keep repeating that in my head as no one seems to notice how absurd the whole premise was to begin with. The only time you close lanes are for repair issues, safety etc not for a study. And those are a big deal. My BIL managed a Tappan Z project and lane closings have to be planned and agreed to and communicated.

      due to damage or accident, lane closures have to be coordinated with a huge variety of agencies. Seems like no one knew about this until the first day of the closures. At the very least, local police should be informed so they can send out officers to help direct traffic.
