Highway 141 Road Construction: Tax Dollars at Work


Last week there was road construction on Highway 141 just north of our house. While I was washing dishes I looked out the kitchen window and, in the distance, the antics of this construction worker caught my eye.

Traffic was just one lane and involved a pilot car guiding traffic, alternating to the east and then to the west. The construction worker was most active after the traffic had just passed, which meant there would be a break of three or four minutes before the pilot car would lead another group of cars past the construction worker.

The video includes audio and is about three minutes in length. Don’t get your hopes up for something awesome. It’s just kind of educational about what a construction worker might be doing between pilot car passes.

    Ah shucks I can’t get it to play here on the gallery so will try again at home. You know Mike has all sorts of things that sometimes block stuff. Will try again at home.

    What a hoot. It was fun to watch him having fun in what could have been a very boring situation.

    And he was getting paid for doing that?
