I hate those Jersey Walls on either or both sides. It just gives you the feeling if you sneezed it would be all over except the clean-up.
2 years ago on our way to Myrtle Beach there was road construction, as always, on the Capital Beltway 495. They had closed a 4 lane highway down to 1 lane and created a 5 mile backup. Once we passed all of the flashing lights on the shoulders and got to where the lanes actually went down to 1, there were 2 trucks parked on the road with flashing lights and 2 workers leaning against the front of one truck. At my exit, 95 South, where 75% of the traffic was heading, the road opened back to 4 lanes. Total length of the 1 lane roadway. 1/10th of a mile, never saw any work being done. This added more than an hour and a half to our travel time. I was originally in the left lane and could see everything over the Jersey Wall on my left. There was nothing for the half mile they used to transition down to 1 lane. I guess that the work was going to commense later that night? Everything looked complete including the shoulders and landscaping.
