From the article:
“Construction at the intersection started on Monday and police fielded five calls about people moving barricades, and construction signs or traffic in the area Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.”

Perhaps the city should take a look at the Iowa safety closure. The closure utilizes a Type III Barricade, placed in the center of the road, with reflective, orange plastic frence attached on both sides of the barricade, and run to both edges of the road.
While the closure is a breakaway barricade system, drivers would know the road is closed, and few drivers would feel inclined to move the closure aside.
Look for Anchor Type III Barricade and NiteLite II reflective fencing on our main site.none
With the launch of SafetyRail, our ADA-Compliant Pedestrian Barricade that provides continuous, obstacle-free guidance through entire sidewalk work zones, (sorry) we have become students of sidewalk closures.
As such, we like pictures a lot. We found the one below on a blog for the 100 Block Gay St. construction site in Knoxville, TN.
Now, it appears from the other pictures on the site that this project is new construction, so there was no pedestrian access route (PAR) to reconfigure. Meaning, there was no temporary pedestrian access route (TPAR) required, we surmise.
Maybe there is no call for SafetyRail here, and the drum does not appear ours, but we do appreciate their use of our Anchor Type III Barricade, the most feature-laden Type III on the market today.
We’d be remiss if we did not mention that Knoxville is the home of Glenn Reynolds, a UT Law Professor who is probably better known as the Instapundit, and is one of our favorite bloggers.none
