Re: So There I Was . . .

If there is enough commercial disruption and it is made clear enough in DC then they will get fixed within a year. An example of similar would be the rebuilding of the I35W bridge in Minneapolis which took just over a year from the time the bridge collapsed and a day under a year from the time the contract was announced. How long it takes to refill the reservoirs is another question.

Following catastrophes rebuilding can be remarkably rapid if a sense of urgency is developed by decision makers.

and, that, adelie, is just my point. if commercial traffic , it will be fixed sooner than if no commercial traffic.

It's not just the commercial traffic, it's the commercial impact on the tourist communities on the route taken as a whole with the commercial traffic. And more importantly than that how well the total impacts are communicated to DC.

Well it looks like this season is out as far as the Canal goes. Friends have to sail from Toronto to Sodus (NY side of L. Ontario) and then ship the boat to Annapolis. They can't even just ship to the Hudson, roads won't take the load.
