    This indeed is a great project I currently work at the UDC, doing excavating and trench work. But there are in fact lots of down about this project! Points of entrance to the job site is a complete joke, it takes me a half an hr to enter or for that matter to even come close to the entrance do to heavy traffic the line of cars over a mile long do to one entrance to this huge project of employees. And second the parking lot is no were near big enough to carry the capacity of cars… I received a paper stating that I would be towed and kicked off this project at my expense.. OK bdb were would you like us to park!!!… And last but not least the organization of this job site plan is very unorganized planning.
