Good Job, VDOT

Unless you are a local you likely have not heard about the cluster f.... that was last weekends traffic in Hampton Roads.  Short version, the Virginia Department of Transportation decided to close a tunnel and a bridge, both going the same direction, at the same time.  This may not seem like the worst thing, until you realize there is only ONE other roadway going the same direction.  People were stuck in traffic for hours.  It was horrible.

Here's an article about it... http://www.wavy.com/dpp/news/local_news/newport_news/bridge-closures-cause-major-delays

Anyways, now they have cancelled their plans to close the tunnel again the next two weekends cause they realized it was a really freaking bad idea... not only that but they are publishing apologies left and right.  There's ads on the radio saying basically "we're so sorry."   You can hear it here... http://hampton.wtkr.com/news/news/62733-what-do-you-think-about-vdots-radio-announcement

Good job, VDOT, screwing up so bad and trying to apologize.  Don't you have people whose job it is to determine how much of an impact that roadwork will have on traffic?  Also, new flash, since apparently no one who makes these decisions for VDOT drives, it is NEVER a good idea to do major road work on multiple roads going the same way at the same time EVER, closures or not.  Just don't do it!  It WILL cause problems, and it's unnecessary.
