My commute takes me through about 20 miles of major highway that is under destruction (construction). And will be for the next 2 yrs. I-595 Construction Updates
I know this and use caution but my gripe is they are not changing signs or providing enough information/signage to drivers along the roadway.
We have a lot of tourist and seasonal drivers that may not have been in the loop on this and add to the chaos.
For example overnight they will shift/move lanes or barricades and there is no sign for new traffic pattern! As a result of changing they are paving /patching bits and pieces with no regard for the road surface other than, it's okay if we don't lose a semi in the pothole!
I rode the highway on Saturday, and I had a scare... I got caught in uneven lanes. NO sign! NO warning! The problem is, this is not like a highway resurface where they leave an edge at a lane, this thing weaved along the entire lane from left to right and back.
Each time I got the bike settled it would change again. Just downright unnerving.
The point of all this is there was another Biker down this AM along this highway project. By the time I rolled past the rider was already cleared from the scene. I have no clue on their condition, nor the reason for the crash.
I told myself this AM that I will no longer ride this highway until they have substantially completed this project. Driving that highway is nuts, never mind riding it. I will figure in extra time and find other ways around. I refuse to be a victim.
Sorry, I had to rant, but this is the 4th biker/bike I have seen with my own eyes down in a month. (Not all on the same highway) Two were in another highway project along I95. 95 Express
They do a slightly better job of signage only because they don't seem to move as fast.
