    You mean that DOTD might finish this job one day. A basic overlay project that should have taken 90 days at the most is now taking more than 6 months to finish. Outstanding. This is a perfect example of our tax dollars at work or should I say “not at work”.

    Makes one wonder, that since our dollars work SOOOO hard for us, that people still feel compelled to give them in the first place. Most government programs are extremely inefficient at best, and since there is no competition or threat of retribution from taxpayers, it leads to problems.

    Could be worse, we could still be riding on that crumbled road. Sure it took much too long, but why don’t we look at that glass as half full? At least those tax dollars are benefitting Central for once and not South Baton Rouge.

    So how long does the traveling public have to deal with construction that goes over schedule without someone being held accountable. Also, why does the traveling public have to deal with the wear and tear on their vehicles especially when the road asphalt was removed and left that way for weeks at a time due to poor scheduling before the contractor put down the new asphalt. I don’t believe I am seeing it with the glass half full. I am seeing it as someone needs to be accountable for poor scheduling and construction management.

    I believe it is the same contractor working on GS Road as the ones working on Jones Creek Road and South Harrell’s Ferry Road in which they are roughly 6-12 months behind schedule on those projects. I wonder what those residents must think about how long construction is taking on those projects.
