Until recently, it looked like the Arrigoni Bridge construction was going more smoothly than anticipated, but lately we've hit a rough patch.
Traffic jams on Thursday and Friday afternoons have become common, and locals are swapping stories about spending a half-hour getting through a half-mile of downtown. I watched a particularly tricky bit of vehicular choreography this afternoon, syncopated by horns and colorful language, as drivers blocked the grid.
Main Street parking spaces were plentiful though - maybe it's time to start offering "Bridge Specials" to encourage drivers to get off the road till rush hour clears.
Can't wait till October!
