TxDot has decided to shut down I-30 between Loop 12 in Dallas and highway 360 in Grand Prairie , as shown here (link).
The timing couldn't be worse. There is a huge race at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend, called the Dickies 500. I'm not the biggest race fan (although my parents used to drag race way back when and have the trophies to prove it), but I know that 150,000+ show up at these races or to just be a part of the action.
I know the project lasts for months, but maybe they should have waited one more week.
But then again, these are the same folks that shut down major highways with minor construction at rush hours all over DFW.
As the Guinness commercials would say, BRILLIANT!
