What I think the City should do is transform the water towers around town to look like giant pacifier's. Just deal with it for gosh sakes. Recognize, adjust and overcome.

Hey! Here's an idea: Start a project. Finish a project. Start a new project. Finish that project. I think they could take their 20 workers and get pne job done on two days instead of starting 20 jobs with one worker per job.... Hmmmm... What do you think?

Whoever planned this road construction to occur all at once needs to answer to someone. There is no doubt road repairs were needed but all at once?? All the alternate routes we tend to take are "road work ahead" closed. Friends live on one of the detour routes and they have to literally back into traffic almost to get out of their driveway due to congestion. People won't let them out otherwise!! Additionally it was bad enough with no left turn signals to have people running through reds and all but it's worse now due to frustration levels. It should not take someone 30-40 minutes to get to work in the morning when it's normally 10.

this city is run by a bunch of morons. Hey here is a good idea. Lets tear up 2 of 4 north and south routes to cross the tracks. Jackwagons.

Ok....well they have our road dug up by the park district building and have not gotten anything done since the beginning of July. We were actually trapped the morning of the Fair parade. When is that going to be finished?

attn newcomers - if you think our traffic is bad, wait until you see our property tax and sales tax rates. Suppose that's why so many ex-minot residents are now living in bismarck?
