"Getting from point a to point b is going to point a to point c to point d, you don't get from point a to point b any time fast," says Michelle McCarten, a Davenport resident.
Other people in the Quad Cities feel Michelle's pain.
Detours on River Drive are confusing and not clearly marked.
Drivers have to head up Mound Street to 12th street and then to Oneida to get back on River Drive.
It's all because crews are fixing century old pipes as part of Davenport's two year resurfacing project. The city is making major changes so the roads will last.
"I was here a couple days ago and I realized the construction that we have down here and I took the detours that are set up and if I wasn't from this area, I would not have been able to make it to downtown davenport," says Rendy ward, a Moline resident.
And for those who do know the roads, it's still a hassle.
There morning commute is taking much longer then usual.
far as getting to work it is a hassle because I can't get on 12th Street because of the traffic coming
from both directions. I live west of here, so I have to take a different route
just to get to work," says McCarten.
The work will continue on River Drive for the next three weeks.
Davenport's public works director says the construction is right on schedule, so folks have to hang in there.
