We were sent letters from the town this past summer letting us know that there would be road construction along route 2A. That is a very busy road, the only way to get out of the condo development where I live. There are quite a few such developments along the three mile stretch of road that connects two intersections.
At rush hour times there can be bumper to bumper traffic on that stretch. There are no back roads or connecting streets. To get out of any of the developments you have to pull out onto 2A. Even if I am walking I have to get across to use the sidewalk. Sometimes it can take a while. Part of the plan is to install a traffic light at the entrance/exit for one of the larger developments. I am not sure that will in any way make it easier for me to get out onto the road.
Well, I wanted to be out of the rural area I lived in before.
Anyway, at the moment the construction is taking place right at the driveway. It’s actually nice. The traffic controllers stop both lanes of traffic and let us out.

I do remember when this town was a cozy and quaint village surrounded by dairy farms. There were no traffic lights at all although sometimes we had to stop for cows crossing the road from field to barn.
