In my mind, there are plenty of positives and negatives of the summer season. Positives would include long sunny days, warmer weather, going to the beach and late night bonfires. Negatives include construction season. When you live in a colder environment like I do, roads freeze in the winter time, cracks expand and roadwork has to be done when it warms up. This leads to unbearable backups on the road and lots of pent up frustration. Here's a few ways to avoid the construction mess.
Driving at night or in the evening can cut down the amount of time you spend on the road. Construction workers are not out and about at night, but if they are use extra caution! You can also beat the rush by planning out your trip ahead of time. Look up local news stations to find out if there are any projected backups and find out where the detours are. There are some smartphone apps that are smart enough to know where construction is taking place, and can be a life saver on road trips. Quite often, construction companies will block off entire roads and bridges, so it is always good to know where they have a temporary road or bridge installed so you can be on your way with no delay. Hope you enjoy your summer, I'm sure I will!
