Traffic during construction
Shovels should start to turn for the Skip Spann Connector at the beginning of 2014 after the project bids are finalized later this year. Commuters could have to deal with temporary lane closures during off-peak hours. Construction of a roundabout could also prompt the closure of Busbee Drive for up to 90 days. Should that happens, traffic from Busbee Drive would be detoured onto Town Park Lane and George Busbee Parkway.
