The road between my house and Mary Beth's apartment has been under construction for about a year. Yesterday was a happy day because they opened up the bridge between our two homes! It took me only 9 minutes to get home from her house yesterday afternoon instead of the 20-30 minutes that the congested detour route required! (It takes 45-50 minutes during rush hour!) This will save me 30 minutes a day, an average of 5 days a week for the next 26 weeks, or 65 hours less time spent in the truck! Yay!
