Why, oh why, is the temporary jersey barrier still blocking the westbound shoulder of Md. 140 in the couple-hundred-foot stretch from west of WMC Drive to just east of Royer Road? The repaving and permanent barrier work has been finished for months and since then there has been absolutely no activity of any kind there either during the day or at night. With the weather cooperating for most of the winter, whatever work that might have been needed could have, and should have, been completed by now and the temporary barriers removed. Does anyone have any answers for that one?
