The exclaimation point on the 16th st water main project

Finally, after 6.5 months, 16th St between Michigan and Indiana is back to normal. Almost. The asphalt guys started around 4pm last night but apparently didn't have the necessary parking restrictions up so they just paved around one of the cars. Whoever was in charge of that whole project shouldn't be allowed to manage a lemonade stand. I truly believe you could have hired a team of Amish, with no modern machinery, to dig up and replace the water main faster than 6.5 months.
