Then drivers will have to use the right lane while workers do the same in the left lane. Work will continue at night until First St. Boulevard and Palm Beach turn into a two-way road.
Joe Bardanara, who lives nearby, said: “It will be a transition. I really hope that this will not cause a lot of accidents. But I know that even on Second Street it is already a transition. And the cars are going the wrong way. That just changed. So I don’t know there have been any accidents, but they’re just like, oh, and then they pass. “
All drivers must be very careful while driving on the road, as the conversion starts on Monday.
