To the editor: Kudos to Michael Beckerman and his great letter to the editor correctly depicting the nightmare that the construction of the roundabout is. It seems that everyone is shaking his or her head with great annoyance at the ridiculous amount of construction work being done.
Certainly, it is a waste of money and harms homeowners and local businesses. The council members and the DOT, in my opinion, have some explaining as to why this was the best solution. Timed stop lights would have worked without the disruption and solved the problem.
In my book, the DOT does not appear to be able to analyze a problem and find a logical solution. The department has created controversy far too often.
Any new roadwork should be looked at again by the town and county officials before they start to ascertain the need and its impact.
