Would be nice if the I-95 construction was going on now.

OMG Coach, it would be. I'm dreading the day that starts.

At least they can keep working on S. Market and also Main St in Newark for now.....

Nice that the governor did not shut down all construction in the state, not just for the WAC. Per the district 1 representative in Newark:

"Newark officials have been actively working with DelDOT and the engineering contractor on a plan to take advantage of Univ. of DE's closure to students by working overtime to complete the Main Street reconstruction that has crippled Main Street businesses and reduced City of Newark parking revenue. I request medical input prior to restricting activities such as that which occur outdoors and not generally in close quarters. I think the same could be said for businesses such as landscapers, for example. Continued operations of businesses such as this do not appear likely to contribute greatly to virus spread and do not act as incentives for cross-border travel to DE. "

This is the type of measured, proportional response which we need right now. Well done, Gov. Carney, following advice such as this.
Agreed, there needs to be real thought put into what the dangers are of continuing work and what can and can't be done safely. Carney's list was far more permissive than what Wolf's PA list was, but he also had the benefit of going second and having others try to pave the path before him. Good decisions though.

By the end of the work day, it was apparent that the workers were cleaning things up and putting some things in “mothballs”, preparing for a stoppage of some unknown time period.
Glad to be wrong (I think). Here in PA, no construction.

No one working at the WAC today. First Saturday in several weeks that the site is not busy. Perhaps they know that the reasons to rush are now behind us?

On a similar note, I live downstate and work (well, worked - I'm 100% telework now during the crisis) in DC a few days a week. As such, I cross the Bay Bridge a lot. They closed down the rightmost of the three westbound lanes for rehab after last Labor Day. It was originally supposed to be a two-year project, but there was such uproar from the backups it created that Maryland Governor Larry Hogan ordered the project expedited at whatever the cost.

They just finished the two year project in six months! Just in time for no traffic. All that money it must have cost to rush from 18 to 6 months, and now it's kind of for naught.

Side note: they're also going to rip out the toll booths on the Annapolis side and go to complete electronic tolling by summer. That should help traffic flow a bunch once things are back to normal.
