Drivers wanting to avoid Road 68

Posted: Updated:

The construction on Road 68 in Pasco continues to back up traffic.

We wanted to see what drivers are experiencing when cruising down the busy street.

 Construction crews have worked for several weeks to widen the lanes, even temporarily shutting of a couple of streetlights and closing down a few sidewalks.

  We asked drivers how long they've been stuck in traffic there before, most said 15 to 30 minutes, but one answer was pretty surprising.

"Probably close to an hour" one driver said.

Many drivers tell us they are becoming more familiar with back roads like Sandifur Parkway to avoid the busy Road 68.
