Thursday, June 25, 2020 by The Press in Opinion

To the Editor:

With warm weather finally here, I am delighted to have my windows open all the time.

I am not so delighted, however, to listen to trucks downshifting into and accelerating out of Congdon Hill Drive in the middle of the night, to hear the endless drone of earth-moving equipment and girders being pounded into foundations, sometimes before the sun rises and to have errant tractor-trailers ending up on my residential street.
