Friday night question:

Have you ever had a commute/trip/drive and when you finally get to your destination (late) the only thing that would make you happy is to kick an ODOT planner in the balls?

What! Did you get caught in one of their bladder bursting "Traffic Accident Investigations" or was it just a not enough road concern?

Got stuck on 205 North this morning?

I'm convinced that ODOT and City of Salem are in a race to see who can do the stupidest things to our roads.

Yep, every time I get stuck in traffic on hwy 217.

But not to worry!!! ODOT will get us a third lane each way in 80+ years, right?

Idiots.

And if they suggest a "toll lane" they should get kicked again...

See, if you just took MAX or rode your bike you wouldn't have had to worry. Just remember to leave 6 hours ahead of time....

ODOT Planners have balls?

Yes, yes I have. More and more often.

there's a lot of times that you wonder what ODOT is thinking. in Eugene on I105 they have suddenly decided that our current signage is inadequate as well as the polls that support them. So they are replacing both. Why? Who knows. Of course, as the city prepares for the Olympic track and field trials for certain that they want to give a good impression.

Just another shining example that cities can be bought.

As far as toll bridges go... I thought our tax dollars that we pay at the pump and other fees went to pay for these roads, why do we have to keep paying more and more in addition to what we already pay?

What do we get out of it?

I heard on the radio yesterday that one of the Oregon reps on the bi-state planning commission to study and come up with a practical and reasonable solution to the Delta Park mess on I-5 stated that THERE IS NO PROBLEM AT DELTA PARK ON I-5. This guy's name evades me at the moment but I believe it starts with B. At any rate this guy either lives in a cocoon in south Florida somewhere (unlikely) or he has never gotten caught in that perpetual mess(maybe, but also unlikely) or his is just plain stupid (very likely). With this kind of thinking the Delta Park mwess will get resolved about the same time as the 217 mess, in 80+ years, as fish said

sometimes I think the people at ODOT make the decisions about roads do not even own cars.

but I am 100% convinced that a lot of the officials just little box with no windows.
