Regarding the frustration of motorists along North Atherton Street (“North Atherton Street work causing delays, frustration,” Oct.17), I think we all agree that improvements are necessary, and the inconvenience of construction is something we have to learn to live with. But what has been particularly challenging about this project is its inconsistency — some days they’re there, other days they’re not, and we’re never sure exactly where they’ll be. It makes it very difficult to plan. I found a general description of the project on the PennDOT website, but I didn’t find day-to-day specifics. There certainly is no signage in the area to give us a heads-up. Using the Maps app on my phone helps, but surely there are ways to improve communication with the people who rely on this traffic artery. If folks knew what was going on, wouldn’t that make things better for the workers and the drivers?
