UPDATE 5/22/19: Now the work crew is set up on the northbound side of Kinderkamack Road, IN THE RIGHT TURN LANE. You cannot make a right onto Old Hook Road if you are headed north on Kkmack Rd. Best to avoid the intersection. Moron work crews are determined to screw with your morning commute.
At 8am this morning, right at the start of rush hour, idiot work crews set up shop on Old Hook Road at the intersection of Kinderkamack Road.
Did they offer advanced notice of this disruption? Of course not.
Avoid the area today, especially if you are heading west toward downtown along Old Hook Road. The two lanes have been merged into one at the traffic light. All other directions seem to be flowing normally.
It’s bad enough that County buffoons came into Westwood the other day and leaked tar from a truck all over Kinderkamack Road. You can still see the dirty stains on the roads, and probably a lot of it is stuck to the underside of your car.
But today’s shenanigans takes the cake. This morning, for more than an hour, at least two County road trucks were parked at the intersection of Old Hook and Kinderkamack Roads. There was nobody directing traffic, no cones or safety devices, just large trucks blocking the busiest intersection in Westwood during a peak time of day!! This work in this unsafe manner is surely NOT AUTHORIZED.
We’ve never seen such a dangerous traffic situation handled with such a casual lack of concern.
The fools bailed from the scene once our reporter’s camera started rolling. See for yourself:
