Blame no one

Lindsey Estreich, Dillon

In response to the Aug. 7 article about CDOT moving to night construction, I would just like to say: nice try to the town of Silverthorne for throwing the blame on CDOT. It’s funny that those who called to complain about the delays were probably the ones who called saying that something needed to be done on Hwy. 6 and Hwy. 9. For example, coming down Dillon hill into Silverthorne, the pot hole by Little Beaver Trail that I crunched my front end on, well guess what? It’s gone.

As the daughter of a CDOT employee for 20-some years, I’ve seen my dad called out at 3 a.m. because some careless driver rolled their car coming down from the tunnel, or some impatient driver who caused a multi-car pileup.

When all is said and done, the roads will be perfect to drive on because there won’t be dips, cracked pavement, potholes, etc. Be patient people, 45 minutes in life is nothing. I would much rather be stopped in traffic for an hour while they’re fixing the damage than to continue driving the roads the way they were.
