Do you believe the idea that Canada has two season - winter and construction?
When does the construction generally start in your area?

I definitely do! It'll start here as soon as the snow melts.

Yep! Construction season has already started, I just got the first notice today that a road will be closed this week for construction.

Yup! Road construction usually starts around here when the universities let out for the year so they can hire students for the summer.

There is at least 1 spot on our 2 lane hwy that they are fixing (they put in a new bridge last summer, so they can detour and replace the old one this summer)

I don't mind when they have construction on 4 lane roads but 2 lane hwys really need a detour before they start repairs IMO!

Construction is definitely picking up the last couple of weeks. I don't mind though. It means spring is almost here!

Construction is beginning to pick up here! And the potholes are still getting bigger! Hope they get on those soon!

I totally agree with that! Not sure when it starts usually, though.

Ugh potholes! Our roads are on such bad condition right now. I hope construction starts soon, or they at least start patching the cavernous holes in the roads. I'm surprised that my car is still intact.
