IT'S BEEN A NIGHTMARE FOR BUSINESSES AND ANYONE TRYING
TO GET AROUND DOWNTOWN.
THE LINCOLN MONROE PROJECT IS MASSIVE, INVASIVE AND
NOW RIVERSIDE BETWEEN LINCOLN AND MONROE IS SHUT DOWN.
SO WHEN WILL IT BE FINISHED?
KXLY4S ARIANA COHEN WENT DOWNTOWN TO FIND OUT.
ARIANA, WHILE YOU WERE THERE, YOU SPOKE WITH A 91
YEAR OLD WOMAN WITH A WALKER TRYING TO GET AROUND
ALL THE MESS?
YES, I SPOKE WITH A SENIOR CITIZEN-- I HELPED HER
GET OVER THE CURB HERE --IT'S HARD ENOUGH FOR ME TO
WALK AROUND HERE, LET ALONE A SENIOR CITIZEN
