This past December was our three year anniversary of moving to Jacksonville. When we arrived there was construction on I-295, which is the outer beltway around the city, and sections of I-95 that cut through the downtown area. That construction continues as I write. By land mass Jacksonville is the largest city in the U.S., and fortunately there is a good amount of economic growth in the area, so it is reasonable to expect road construction will be a part of that.
If I have any engineering genes, I'm sure they're recessive, so I marvel at the designs of the roadways and applaud the folks who turn those designs into expressways. In between the applause, I will continue to pray for patience and calm as I deal with the traffic delays.
