    I understand the need for repairs. I know interstate work can be dangerous. Here are a couple of suggestions NIT angry response. Sat. 15th on 85 stunt near Sharpsburg, sign said “left lane closed” about a half mile out. SHOULD have said “1 lane only merge to right lane”. It kept bottle necking down to 1 lane. Trafficking was backed up for at least 15 miles. Then, when you get to work area, there is 1 MAN with concrete saw cutting groves and one putting in wire. Then about a mile there is 1 man SITTING on a machine, 1 man talking to him, 1 man sitting leaning on the barricade sleeping. I am doing about 1 mph so got a good look. Then it was about another mile before it opened up. I suggest signs and comes about 5 miles out moving traffic to the 1 open lane, with a Sheriff or State trooper every mile making sure people move over. Then get a CREW of more than 5 or 6 people working. I applaud you working on Sat to keep most people from being late for work. It is not your fault that gas was in shirt supply this weekend, however, thousands of gallons were waisted. It took 1 hour and 14 minutes to get through. Thank goodness the 2 State troopers or Sheriff cars sitting in the median were letting people move pretty fast.
