FrontBurner Watch: Fixing the Live Oak Exit

A driven FBvian suggests a new feature for FB:

I read the San Francisco Chronicle several days this week and was amused by a feature at the bottom of their “Metro” section. They run a daily feature called “Chronicle Watch” that lists one daily item local government should be fixing — as suggested by readers. The Chronicle names the government official who is responsible and that person’s telephone number and e-mail address. If the problem isn’t resolved, the Chronicle follows up with re-posts that list the number of days elapsed since the problem was raised with the government official.

Here’s an initial submission: is the left lane of southbound Central really going to be closed for ONE WHOLE YEAR while DART works around the old Live Oak left exit? Can DART/TxDOT/Dallas really not re-stripe the highway to avoid the double-whammy of a left lane closure that coincides with the Woodall Rodgers traffic merges taking place in the right lanes? Surely someone can be embarrassed into fixing this problem.

Dangit. Does this mean that now I have to figure out who is responsible for this? Sounds a whole lot like work.
