They are digging up Loma Verde again. This morning at 8.05 confusion reigned at the intersection as flag man and crossing guard gave opposing directions to drivers and pedestrians. One stopped the traffic to let kids cross and the other directed traffic to move through the intersection. One can't speak English, don't know about the other. The roadwork makes so much noise that no one could hear anything being said. One trailer on Louis was blocking the crosswalk.
When confusion results like this, we can understand that the City does not communicate with itself. Someone (who?) from the utilities should have contacted traffic and whoever looks after crossing guards and worked out how this should have been dealt with. It should not be left to elementary age kids to deal with.
