Richardwhee and Beaver...the workers you see on these construction projects and just that, construction workers, usually UNION construction workers, not employed by the WVDOT, but by the contractor. And also, most everyone in this working society gets paid by the hour, not the job. Your level of sour grapes is only exceeded by your ignorance.

I remember the good ole days when roads were built of CONCRETE and REBAR!!

Back then road construction was RARE and sporatic

With the extensive use of asphalt and the massive amount of trucks and gas industry damage, road construction will be EVERY year!!!

Area roads are now getting 10 YEARS of wear and tear in ONE weeks time!!!

And EXACTLY as I predicted, it is costing taxpayers BILLIONS in repairs!!!!

The contractor employees have to work hard because they have to have a project finished by a certain date.

State workers get paid by the hour and so they have no motivation to move faster.

Some may enjoy their one chance to get back at a society that they feel has wronged them. It may give them a sense of power to delay and upset drivers who are busy commuting to jobs that pay the taxes to support the state road worker.

Of course, he doesn't see it this way.

PENNDOT is 100% worse. For a long time, there was even a website dedicated to the cause. W W W DOT PENNDOT ***** DOT COM.

The other day, the onramp to 70 east AND the McColloch street exit were closed, so the only option to get on 70 east was to get on 70 west go through the tunnel and make sure you get in the right lane to exit at Main Street. There were NO signs telling drivers to do this. Some people probably ended up in Ohio.

I understand the need for repairs, but in order to be a state road worker, you have to submit a DNA sample proving that you are part turtle, slug or sloth. Just don't get why they can't do the work faster, given the number of them standing around watching the rest.
