436 Roadblock

Okay. Will someone PLEASE tell me WHY THE HELL has 436 been blocked off from around Curry Ford to Lake Underhill? When I tried driving to work this morning and found myself taking a 15-minute slow-motion detour through some residential neighborhood, I assumed the blockoff was due to an accident. It wouldn’t have surprised me. Yesterday evening, I got stuck in traffic on 436 because there had been some huge accident requiring helicopter assistance near Howell Branch. People just don’t know how to drive around here, but that’s another post.

So I was driving home from work tonight and I noticed a distinct slowdown in traffic near 436 and Lake Underhill. I assumed it was just standard rush-hour annoyance. Nope! Another police blockade. My 25-minute commute became 45 minutes as I turned onto a jam-packed Goldenrod.

What’s going on here? Traffic’s become so awful around this area, I’m scared to do my groceries now.

    You’ve probably figured it out by now but someone crashed into one of those huge utility poles and knocked it over, stripping lines and cables were everywhere.

    I watched it on the news around 11 am and then again at 5 pm… it was still blocked!! I feel bad for anyone traveling that way.

    People need to drive better. I naddition to endangering themselves and others, when drivers casue a crash they create more traffic congestion (and we don’t need anymore!) I think traffic tickets should be doubled during rush hour.
