In Ohio: So Much Work. Not Enough Detour Signs.

The Akron Beacon Journal editorial board writes, “Of all things, a shortage of detour signs is holding up work on Akron’s central interchange, where Interstates 76, 77 and state Route 8 come together.” In short, the contractor ran out of signs and, as the newspaper adds helpfully, “There is no state warehouse of used signs that can be tapped.” The editors also note that bonds backed by Ohio Turnpike revenue are partially funding a $6 billion state transportation initiative.
