Everybody wants smooth, pot-hole free roads to drive on, but they don't want to spend hours in traffic. You can't have one without the other, however.
So be patient the next few months. Allow yourself some extra time to get where you are going because while the road may be wide-open one day, it might be a parking lot tomorrow.
And please slow down. Those men and women working are working hard, and risking their lives at times, to make your life considerably less bumpy.
