There Is Construction and There Is Construction

The government has, at present, a temporary moratorium on building construction in place.

In the meantime, agriculture has increased as well as road construction.

When you turn off Highway 60 to enter Shiloh now, you'll see orange road signs warning you to be cautious:

And as you come to the main security entrance to Shiloh and the other communities (Shvut Rachel, Ahiyah, Adei-Ad, Yishuv HaDa'at, Keida, Alei-Ayin, HaBayit Ha'Adom and Esh-Kodesh), you can see this sign:

And the sign reads: "The National Company for Roads and the Ministry of Transportation and Road Safety, operating Netivei Yisrael, are construction an upgrading of the Shiloh-Shvut Rachel approach road; Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister and Yisrael Katz, Transport Minister, - Israel On The Move. Completion Date: February 2011":-

Knowing Israel, I wouldn't be on February.
