A Met Council project started early in one Minneapolis neighborhood.  When crews began to tear open the road at 1 a.m., people from as far away as four blocks complained.

Joshua Carlson lives near the construction zone. "Nobody in the neighborhood has any idea what's going on."

Tim O'Donnell, with Met Council Environmental Services, says the project needed to coordinate with another project in the area. He says due to the small window of opportunity, the project actually had to start early.

That was before any neighborhood informational meetings could be held.
