Anyone trying to either drive along Moody Street or cross Moody Street between Cerritos Ave. and Lincoln Ave. this week knows that the project to install a new median is not yet finished.
The north-south street has been reduced to a single lane for most of that distance for months due to chained construction projects following each other like cars in a freight train.
This week, construction barriers were removed and, for a short time, two lanes of traffic moved along smoothly on both sides.
That smooth flow ground to a crawl when construction crews blocked off lanes to lay a new surface, then to stick down temporary lane markers.
Today, a work crewman was out with an upside-down paint can marking the new black road surface with white crosses.
And, yes, a single narrow lane — this time the center lane — let a few long-suffering (or unknowing) drivers through.
The project is scheduled to finish by the end of the month.
That’s next Tuesday.
We can hope.
