Businesses on Lewis are enjoying the return of traffic flow now that the bridge over I-44 is open again.
Nearly two years of construction had the road blocked, forcing drivers to take another route. That other route was often Harvard, which had resulted in mixed feelings among Tulsans.
Drivers on Harvard were upset that more cars were in their way, while some businesses enjoyed the extra attention.
KRMG spoke to Dr. Justin Snyder of Snyder Chiropractic and Acupuncture. Dr. Snyder said his customers would frequently blame traffic for their tardiness to appointments.
But Dr. Snyder is glad to see progress on Tulsa’s roads.
“Building the traffic infrastructure can only help the city itself.” Dr. Snyder said.
He also said it was nice to see the repaving of Harvard from 41st down to near 51st, but now he’d like to see the intersections of 31st & Harvard and 41st & Harvard fixed.
