Interstate 79 roadwork
beyond the   ridiculous
What now?
After nine months of resurfacing Interstate 79 from Mount Morris, Pa, to the Star City exit, they (roadwork crews) are at it again? What now?
The people, like me who travel this five-mile stretch of roadway on a daily basis would like to know what possibly can they be doing now? Orange pylons were placed on I-79 Friday.
First of all, why would you tie up an interstate on a weekend, especially when students are coming back from spring break. Secondly, why would you limit this roadway to one lane, both northbound and southbound and not have a worker in sight?
This same interstate was tied up for nine months the last time it was  resurfaced, a very terrible job I might add. How much longer now and for what, what possibly could they be doing now? This is ridiculous!

Justice, still own potholes in Mon County There has been much talk but little results from the governor about increased efforts to upgrade or repair our primary roads in Monongalia County.
