What is going on at the Utah Department of Transportation? It took me an extra half-hour to get home today because UDOT is doing construction on 7200 West and 8000 West — two of the main roads into my town. I had to go all the way across town in order to get back to my house. The kids who have to take the bus home from school now have to avoid two roads, each of which are the main means of getting into some neighborhoods.

Where was the planning on this? And why now? Whoever planned this traffic nightmare needs to be fired.
