I have posted photos of road crews working, and lane closures, on Wisconsin Avenue by Battery Lane the last 2 nights.

But many residents of nearby homes, and apartment buildings Rosedale Park and 8200 Wisconsin, are telling me - and county police - they've had enough of the overnight racket.

The State Highway Administration is referring to the project as road maintenance work. It involves digging in the roadway, and steel plates that are being knocked about by passing cars.

As you can see in the photos, a massive Vermeer saw is utilized in the work.

There is no indication how long the 9 PM - 5 AM cacophony will last, but permits for such work are often issued, and have been in this case. The permits exempt a contractor from nighttime noise restrictions. Alas, little announcements in newspapers rarely come to the attention of affected residents during the comment period for noise waivers.

It's clear from the many unknowns that residents were never directly informed about this project.
