Dear PoP – 18th and Columbia Torn Up


“Dear PoP,

Sometime last week road crews tore up 18th & Columbia, screwing up traffic and making things a giant pain in the ass for everyone in the area. Friday afternoon they packed up and split, leaving the intersection a nasty, gravelly mess.

I don’t know which talented public works official oversaw this brilliant plan, but it’s pretty ridiculous that they’d leave the place looking like a third-world slum all weekend without even pretending to work on it. Maybe they should have hired the guys remodeling the building next to mine, they definitely don’t have a problem working on Saturday mornings.”

Does anyone know the time frame for this project?
