The weekend will present a challenging commute for drivers on the Q-Bridge, as transportation crews begin the biggest traffic shift so far in the project.
"If we are going to have a new bridge, we are going to have to bear with it," said New Haven commuter David Goff. "But I can't imagine one lane. I just cannot."
The Q bridge shift has begun. The Connecticut Department of Transportation is closing lanes on I-95, so that traffic on the southbound lanes can be moved from the old Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge to the new span.
This weekend the southbound lanes on the bridge go down to one--- from 10 p.m. to 8a.m. During the day, only two lanes will be open.
James Wise, a driver for Daddio's says the slow go will hurt business.
"It's new to me, I was not aware of that but I saw the sign for that," Wise said. "It is not going to be good for business and for our commuters."
There are several options to get around this traffic crunch. To get on I-91 through Route 80, you should get off exits 52, 55, 57 on I-95 South.
Taking Route one connects you to I-91, Route 34 and I-95.
Some drivers are going with the flow.
"It need to be done, so what are you going to do," said Brian Bizby of New Haven. "Change, progress."
Othersare avoiding it all together.
"I'll go 91 or something else," said New Haven resident Snow Turner. "I will go around the area."
"This weekend I'm heading to the beach, I'm going to head to Misquamicut because I know there is going to be a lot of traffic that way, so I am going to avoid the Q-Bridge actually," said Erica Gambardella.
"That bridge has always been a headache," said Al Bayk. "So it's nothing new."
"What used to be a lane is no longer a lane. That's a little confusing but other than that, once it is complete, I am sure it will be much better," said Sheilene Snipes.
