Ok here is what has happened so far, The Temporary Traffic Control set up was put into place recently, On Saturday The accedent happened resulting in a double fatality. Late last night the Contractor Had his crew out picking up the entire set up even though it is reasonable to say the work has not been completed, which leads any normal person to think either the OSP directed them to pick it up due it being unsafe or set up wrong. Or the contractor wanted his set up pulled before any one could scutinize it. If we know one thing the OSP is very good at disecting accedents, taking good pictures, and extensive documentation of their observations. Not pointing any fingers or trying to blame any one including the Contractor, just what I have seen so far.

nojimbo you are 100% correct. I dove by today and part of my constuction duties are to lay out temporary traffic control for ODOT and other state D.O.T's . Even with out measuring you can tell the distance in the tangent ( space between the first lane shift and the second) was way too short and the advanced warning signs did not look right. I definatly plan on calling ODOT .

FYI, The fracking fluid has not been classified as hazardous yet because the drilling companys refuse to reveal the chemicals used in it. This is done by calling the fluid "proprietary" with a need to keep competetors from obtaining the formula. The EPA has on its own tested the fluids from several different companys and identified at least 75 different hazardous chemicals. This is why PA refuses to allow their dumping along with a growing number of other states that dont want their toxic waste in their backyard. Lets see how fast Campbell jumps at the cash. Also just in case of an enviornmental spill or contamination a law passed a few years back gave the energy and gas and oil producers domesticly an excemption from the laws of CERCLA and SUPERFUND which basically gives them immunity.
