Construction Season in Ohio

So construction season is full under way here in Ohio and one thing that I notice is that there is still no development for improvement for mass transit. They can patch every road and fix every on ramp but that isn't going to help our ever growing problem of inefficiency.

A light rail line can move the equivalent of an 8 lane highway. How long until we are all stuck in gridlock for more than an hour a day. Having recently moved to Canton, I hate the drive back towards Cleveland during the weekends. If I could take a train and just relax for those couple hours I'd be a lot better off. Not only would I feel better mentally but I'd probably accomplish a lot more. Especially if free WiFi were provided.

So Ohio, how about we actually start building something for long term growth instead of widening highways?
