Many drivers and businesses are pleasantly surprised by a lack of tie-ups

One week after the Flagler Bridge closed for repairs, the Florida Department of Transportation is getting nothing but compliments from drivers and businesses. They say the traffic tie-ups have been minimal, often less than what they were when the bridge was operational.
Before the bridge closed on May 12, the Department of Transportation, as well as West Palm Beach city leaders, had vowed to do everything possible to keep traffic moving smoothly in the affected area.
