Letter: Construction on three major north-south roads

I would be interested to hear DPW’s explanation for how they have permitted simultaneous construction on three separate north/south thoroughfares in South Baton Rouge.

There is currently major construction work occurring on Stanford Avenue, Lee Drive and Staring Lane — leaving Kenilworth Boulevard as the most viable alternative route for many commuters.

I understand the desire to accomplish road construction while school is not in session, but the timing of these projects appears to represent very poor planning.
