They have this road work so messes up can not go through main way or the detour. I don't think any of the businesses thought it would be this bad.

None of you can probably even fathom the amount of preparation, planning, details, multiple agencies, companies, people, equipment, coordination and understanding of a job like this. Your ignorance shows in your comments. Think of it like this - You own an 100 year old multiple story home that you did not build that has been worked on over the years by multple families and companies. Now you have to start at one end of your house and replace all water and sewer lines to every room without going under your house and working on them. Also redo all utility lines like electrical, cable, etc while you do it. While performing this think of having to move all of your furniture, carpet, flooring, applicances, etc. and make room for it and allow your family to still function with them every day. Yes you have to go thru the floor and I bet you open up the same hole multiple times. You have to watch out for wiring and other obstacles and involves electricians, gas company, nat'l grid, time warner, etc. In order to do it you also have to redo all lines to the street and thru your yard. Then start putting it all back in a new spot that will upgrade and replace all of the old without upsetting anyone in the house. I bet you could never even ponder doing such a small task. Now multiply that project by about 900% and you have the Canton job. Think before you speak and try understand the complexities of the project like this. You have no idea and never will. Driving thru is not understanding what they are actually doing. Stop by the engineer's office or superintendent and see if they will let you poke thru the 3' stack of detailed plans they have for this project. You will start to understand and have a different perspective maybe. I have seen other projects of the same magnitude and fully understand what a job like this must be like planning and executing on a busy, small town with one road going thru the downtown. It is completely incredible what they have done in the short amount of time. My hat goes off to the contractors on this project. From what I read in the paper, hear on the news and what businesses are saying is it is really not as bad as what they imagined and they will make it thru.

And I don't care how long they so called "planned" this, it was NOT thought through. Yeah, maybe Main St. needed some work but when people cannot get to school it's NOT cool. Tell me how to pay back these student loans that have no merit now. I was forced to drop out of college after spending over $100.00 a week on EXTRA gas to wait hours daily in the traffic blockage.

You are an ignorant waste of time. Most people want to just get from one side of town to the other? Really? Wake up doe. Life is passing you by and you are failing at being relative what is going on around you. You are speaking for a people that do not want or need you to speak for us. We appreciate everything that they are doing for our village - the state, the contractors and the local patience that I have witnessed.

Awwww you didn't receive your medal i guess nobody cared. The people driving tractor trailers just love shopping in town i see them all stop and see the movies. Yes the people i have seen upset waiting to just get from one side of town to the other are doing just that i know i have been in the long lines. My yes i am missing so much so true my time setting in my vehicle. The contractors are backwards like you.
