A few months ago I called the cities of St. Louis Park and Minneapolis to inquire about the “construction,” and both said they didn’t have projects underway. A call to Hennepin County netted the same answer. The sympathetic county employee said he would send someone over to check. Well, that person must still be stuck in traffic, because the phantom construction continues. While the inconvenience to commuters frustrates me, it’s even more frustrating to wonder who’s paying for this nonexistent work.
