This may have been covered before, but I couldn't find an answer.

WHY does CDOT insist on cutting trees doing road work during rush hours?

Choosing to take a lane out of service, or create a bottleneck during rush hour seems insane to me, why not do it during the day when there is less traffic, and less affected businesses and tax payers?

It is DOTís policy to not start work until after 9:00 AM and to be off the highway by 3:00 PM. They give contractors stiff penalties if they work outside those hours so if they are still working during rush hour there is usually a very good reason. I canít say for sure what the reason was but it could be for something that was a hazard to the public or a job that went longer than planned. Believe me this is not taken lightly. Jay
