first_imgMORE INFOTuscaloosa Traffic: It’s Road Work Season … For the Next Year and a Half: July 27, 2018Road work on Lurleen B. Wallace Drive is slowing down the commute for thousands in and around Tuscaloosa.About 140,000 vehicles travel on the stretch of road between the Hugh Thomas Bridge and Eighth Street in Tuscaloosa.Two lanes are open during the day, and at night traffic is allowed just one lane while crews remove parallel parking spots from the road and creating spots on side streets to replace them.Some businesses in the area, like Frutta Bowls, said they’re feeling the effects of all that road work.“Nobody enjoys construction,” said Frutta Bowls co-owner Josh Giambalvo.Giambalvo said he’s gotten several messages and emails from customers saying they haven’t come by because they didn’t know if the business was open, and others asking the best way to traverse the road work to get there.“It’s hard to measure, but with students coming into town we have seen a little decrease in business, but hey, we will educate them and I think we will be good to go.”The nearly $25 million project has a projected completion date of December 2019.last_img
