Ironman traffic

I’m all for athleticism, but please do not shut the city and county roads down ever again.

Our family was not able to get to church. It took an hour and a half to get from Slabtown to the Cedar Rod and Gun Club for my son to complete his hunter safety course. This was only possible because of one sheriff and one state policeman at different intersections allowing me to travel across blocked roads that were fully closed to all crossings.

As a taxpayer I see this huge road closure as much greater than an inconvenience for those of us who live and work here. It was also a gigantic waste of law enforcement time away from regular duty.
