    Mikey, the road improvement itself will be much-appreciated. However, construction projects in SA (or at least the ones I’ve experienced) take longer than they’re projected. 18 months is a long time to start with, and it’ll probably take longer. They probably won’t open up fully until summer of 2014. That means that half of the students who currently attend Trinity will have graduated by the time Hildebrand is open again.

    What I’m trying to say is that, yes, we like the fact that they’re improving the roads, but it’s an annoyance (albeit minor) that we have to take a different route to and from Broadway. It would be easier for students to get over the construction if everyone were going to be able to appreciate the improvements in the end, but a lot of people won’t even be living in SA anymore.

    At the end of the day, though, you’re right: It’s not THAT big of a deal. And I second the quote from Christine Drennon (in the article), that it’s really tough for the small businesses on that stretch of road; not so much for us.

    Have you guys ever driven on Hildebrand?! It seems to me that this road improvement project is long overdue. This strikes me as a net positive.
