    That’s surprising to hear states shut it down. Even Michigan kept road construction going.
    I texted a friend who owns a highway construction company on the west side of Michigan that they never started work or even called back employees because of the shelter-in-place order. They were waiting to start work.


    *edit* Here in Illinois we finally got the asphalt plants approved to open just a couple weeks ago. We still haven't gone 100% working yet. I'm on two projects that aren't going to be starting for another two weeks.

      Maybe it depends on the type of work being done? Because MDOT has definitely been doing work this whole time on major projects.

        Our big projects in IL that didn't really shut down for the winter kept rolling though this. It seemed that it was new projects that took a little longer to get started.

        Probably the same for Michigan. Big projects that were working through the winter kept going. New projects might have been more questionable.

          Even some that aren't major. The primary street that leads to my street was chewed up for resurfacing in the past week.

                LOL. Eliminate cap gains tax. That's great.

                Alternative proposal: increase cap gains tax to be the same as income tax.

                            Yeah indoor mini golf and Hallmark stores should be open. God these people are ****ing stupid.

                              Mini-golf COULD open, and also practice social distancing. Follow the same rules as golf courses. FRT, I only played par 72 courses, sometimes with real greens. There is enough space.
                              Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                                If it's indoors I disagree. Outdoors maybe but screw it it isn't needed.
