  1. The railroads picked a horrible time to work on the tracks in this area. With the airport currently blocked for through traffic and Old Airport Rd south of Taberna also blocked for construction that leaves 3 outlets to Hwy 70 for Taberna residents and the neighborhoods between Taberna and Airport Road. In addition, the main entrance/exit to Taberna from Hwy 70 (beside Dunkin Donuts) is currently closed to all traffic for railroad construction. That leaves only 2 other outlets — Grantham Road and Airport Rd.

    Monday morning (March 8) at 8 am I was attempting to leave the Taberna area for an 8:15 appointment. At that time Grantham Road was blocked by railroad workers so I proceeded north to Airport Road. When I was in sight of the railroad crossing on Airport behind Riverside motors lo and behold the railroad workers then came through and blocked that crossing as well! In other words I had NO way to reach Hwy 70 at 8 am on a business day. I hope no one in Taberna and surrounding neighborhoods had a medical emergency yesterday morning because if they did the trial lawyers will be licking their lips to sue!

    Get your act together railroads! Pay attention to other road projects going on around you.
