Whether drivers are fine with construction or cannot wait for it to end, traffic on Verona Road is shifting Wednesday into Thursday, entering the project?s next phase of construction.
It takes Amanda Hippensteel longer to drive from her apartment to the Beltline than it does to walk.
?The biggest problem is how backed up the construction is making traffic. It takes 20 minutes to go two blocks, usually if you're coming at rush hour,? Hippensteel said.
Atlas Rogers is training to be a bus driver and rides the stretch of road under construction every day, and he?s impressed with the progress.
?It has not really been that bad over here, you know, it's been kind of smooth,? Rogers said. ?Except for the few people that haven't adjusted or want to make a quick turn here or there, but otherwise everybody's been following direction and instructions and going the proper way.?
