So far so good. We are almost one full business week into the Manatee avenue bridge closure. Those I have discussed commuting to and from Anna Maria Island have positive comments regarding the traffic congestion on Anna Maria. They say "life" is good. Most tell me the detour is only about 10 minutes out of the way. We have not seen a weekend as of yet so time will tell but all indications show that all the actions the Department of Transportation has taken to ensure the flow of traffic has made big impacts. I remain cautiously optimistic. So far so good!
