How’s the Beltline - Fortify traffic working out for you?

Commuters, employers and truckers feared the worst when the state Department of Transportation began a three-year project to rebuild 11.5 miles of Raleigh’s southern Beltline. And so did DOT.

But many drivers say the traffic delays have been manageable.

How’s the project DOT calls “Fortify” working out for you and your driving? Have you changed your rush hour route – or your routine? Is your business suffering? Are you making it home on time for supper?
