Some helpful tips
Major construction continues in various area’s throughout the Trinity-Conception region. Everyone is reminded to drive with caution, care, and courtesy. We all have somewhere to go and we always leave it to the last second. Of course, this is the time we will be stopped for five minutes waiting to get through a construction zone. Anger boils over and we do stupid things!
A lot of our weekly traffic complaints result from construction zones, cars doing u-turns in front of people. Cutting off other traffic, and blocking entrances and exits. Be courteous, and don’t block the business or private roadways when you are stopped in traffic. It won’t change anything and only prevents further traffic from moving.
