No accident but lots of traffic.

The morning started off rainy, wet, with fallen leaves scattered about. I woke to the jazz music followed by announcements by the DJ that accidents have been reported as a result of the damp weather.

I was on the Q46 bus heading to the train station at Kew Gardens. We were moving along as can be expected on the Q46 route, and then somewhere along Union Turnpike we started to crawl with moments where we would sit for minutes at a time without moving.

I thought maybe an accident had happened further down along Union Trnrpk. We eventually passed Main Street and no accident scene. We crawled onto the highway and as we slowly approached Queens Boulevard at Kew Gardens, all was revealed as to what caused the backup. NYC DOT was doing road work at the green lawn point as you got off the expressway and intersected Queens Boulevard.

No accident! Some of the other bus passengers were sorely upset when they realized it was road work that caused the traffic slow down.
