It's part of the gig! A buddy of mine provides me with much laughter as he goes totally mental each year whenever we hit construction...and I am pretty sure his going mental never really does much to alleviate the construction he so hates.

Im going to get a really long ramp and get back a couple miles, then gun it and jump that sumbich :-) So if you see a Jeep Liberty airborne and it lands on your car while your stuck in road construction traffic, well that will be me !

FYI - signs up on NB USHWY 53 this morning that northbound 53 across Blatnik (High) bridge will be closed starting May 14th at 0900. Haven't been able to find out for how long. Will be a slight detour for folks heading from WI to MN. Maybe extra 10 minutes most of day, bit longer between 7-8 a.m. weekdays.
I would avoid it if it were possible, that 511 site is very handy though. Basically the American system of the lowest bidder wins causes poor work that you would never see on a road such as the autobahn, but that also costs much more to build.

just as a odd-ball comment..for me the worst part of the drive north is from my place by the Vets Hospital in Mpls to the start of 35N..it takes forever to make the stop and go drive up Hiawatha Ave and break out on to the freeway non stop to Cloquet.
