Why do road work during peak season?

    I questioned writing this letter because of the sadness that the outcome is still the same. I’m choosing to write it because I believe I am asking a couple of valid questions and my intention isn’t to blame but to not do it again. Why in the middle of our community’s busiest season do we have road work in the center of our activities?
    We have a limited season when most visitors come here. Summertime is hot and busy. The airport is full, traffic from cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and people are zigzagging throughout the valley. Why at this time of the year is the decision made that it’s the right time to work on the roads? On slow traffic seasons driving becomes more of a risk but the busiest season?
    My sincere condolences to Bonni’s family and friends.  
Paul Bernstein

    Editor’s note: Investigators have said they don’t believe road work in Ketchum was a factor in the fatal accident involving Ketchum resident Bonni Curran.
