Road work?

I wrote last week about the presentation i made at Coffee with Council, citing the embarrassing condition of the Roxboro/Markham/Mangum crossover. It's especially embarrassing as this is the main "gateway to downtown" for folks coming to the ballpark or the new expensive theater on Mangum St. from North Raleigh or North Durham. Actually, it's more than just an embarrassment. It's dangerous, too. so far there haven't been any fatalities there, but lots of property damage accidents, including a couple in the past 4 years that have knocked power out to the surrounding neighborhoods for a couple of hours at a time.

I was surprised to see that work had started on the intersection already.

Although i have to admit that based on the visual evidence, it's entirely unclear exactly who is doing the work. It sure doesn't look like it's either the city or the state.
