Interstate work lasting too long


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

I have always enjoyed visiting Norman after graduating from the University of Oklahoma in 1976 but have made my last trip.

Interstate 35 has been under almost continuous construction at Norman for at least 30 years. Undoubtedly, pockets are being lined ... Today, March 1, traffic was backed up to Riverwind from the south. No, it was not attributable to the home basketball game as, when I headed home well into the first half, traffic remained at a standstill. It’s almost comical, but enough is enough.
