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.
