“Dear PoPville,

The Sherman Avenue road work – what gives? As a cyclist that uses this street daily, it seems like progress here has come to a halt. I remember over a year ago reading something along the lines of “Completion – Dec 2011″ but here we are in September and about 1/10 of the entire project seems near completion. The sliver of road they HAVE completed is obviously missing a top layer of asphalt, and none of the street lights are lit. It seems like they will work for 2 weeks, get a fair amount of work done, then disappear for the next 2 months or so, before completing another 2 weeks of work.

I was hoping you folks had an insight as to when it might be finished, or a clue as to why the work seems so herky-jerky.”

According to DDOT:

“Construction for this project will be done in three (3) phases. The project is to be completed in 630 days. The anticipated completion date is July 8, 2012.

Motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are advised to be alert, exercise caution, and follow the posted detour signs and Variable Message Signs (VMS).”

For the folks that live nearby – are you noticing progress?
