Road Rage

How long does it take to repair a quarter-mile stretch of road? I've been asking that question a lot lately because more than five months after it began, construction work on the stretch of Commonwealth Ave. near Boston College continues, and it shows no real sign of nearing completion. For many months now, I've been complaining about the many potholes in the area, which still haven't been filled in, and the disturbance that some of this construction work has created. I'm sure I'm not the only one in the area who's growing frustrated by the pace of the work. After all, it started in the spring when things were slow, and now, just as the college students are coming back and the roads are getting more crowded, it's still going. Hopefully it won't be much longer till Comm Ave is a nice drive again, and I don't have to deal with being rerouted or driving over potholes or rocks or around construction trucks anymore.
