Will neighborhood construction come to an end?

On Wright Street, I see that there is only one lane of traffic open in certain areas. Guess what, there is only one lane of traffic on Neil Street at times. At every turn, it seems you witness the orange and yellow signs that indicate that road work is being completed in the city and on the highway.

I have read that the Department of Transportation has given federal funds to help revitalize our neighborhoods and trees. Weather is an important element in making the task easier. The goal is to complete as much as possible while the weather is accommodating.

How would I feel if these projects were not completed? I am sure I would complain further about starting things and not finishing them. So while the weather is warm, the conditions favorable, I will refrain from complaining and wait to enjoy the completed work.
