An example of a good decision in Illinois
An example of a good decision in Illinois

IMG_4764The state of Illinois makes a lot of bad decisions. That is no secret to anyone. But following other states leads the State of Illinois decided to allow for Night Construction years ago in certain situations and as shocking as it is to say… its a really good decision.

 

Now there are people who don’t like it and want it to stop. Are you kidding me?

Nighttime construction speeds up work and causes fewer traffic issues that delay commuters and prolong construction projects. A good example of this is Interstate 55 southbound after the 72 and 55 split at the 6th street exit. IDOT has decided that rather than delay traffic during the day for months at a time to do work on the overpasses they would allow for night construction to speed up the process.

IMG_4768It has caused a few minor delays on my drive home which is around 7 or 8pm depending on the night but it is nothing compared to the backup that would occur for months if the work was in the “daytime only” we used to have in this state.

I say let’s not only keep it up but let’s do more nighttime construction in this state!
