Barrels Of Laughs

Last weekend I drove to and from Indianapolis and along the way passed through several 20 mile long lane closures lined with hundreds of thousands of orange barrels. Naturally there didn't seem to be any purpose to the barrels; there were no workmen present and no discernible road work going on.

After seeing these vast and endless stretches of barrels I've come to the conclusion that the INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) doesn't have a warehouse. I think they're storing the barrels right there on the highway. When they actually need some barrels they just drive over to the highway, load a few hundred in some trucks and off they go. When they're done they bring 'em back and store them on the highway at the pretend worksite again. It's the only explanation that makes sense.


  1. LOL. You have finally uncovered the truth about these unused barrels. I always wanted to know why they were there as well. I thought it was the Sheriff's dept. trying to enforce the speed limit without the use of actual employees.

  2. Hmm. That's a good point about the speed limit. You may be on to something!
