Why can't projects like these be announced in advance so that we can plan alternate routes, or make plans in advance?

Why can't the Weekly have a section each week of upcoming road construction for the following week?

Why can't this information be tweeted or put on facebook to let those of us impacted know ahead of time? PAPD does this on fb and it has given me warning of when to avoid things like traffic delays because of Stanford Games which I would otherwise be unaware of.

Thank you

What went wrong with the catch basin? How long has it been inoperable? If it was discovered earlier, why wait for the rainy season to repair it?
