D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -
Sangani Boulevard, they're curse words to many drivers due to the high traffic congestion on that roadway.
"I think it's horrible. I think they built all of these businesses and things without thinking of the traffic," said driver Anne Todd.
"The way everybody just piles in the intersection when they get their green light and then you have to wait through two or three lights," said Charles Isaacs.
It's drivers like Todd and Isaacs that made the D'Iberville Police Department realize it needed a holiday traffic plan.
"We asked our citizens to take alternate routes. We had extra officers in place to work some of the red lights and that worked out well," said Captain Clay Jones.
Captain Jones said holiday traffic isn't something you can get rid of, you just have to make the best with what you have.
Captain Jones' "can do" attitude was well received.
"When I was up here it was too awful bad," said driver Ronald Good.
Coming out of the holiday season, the next thing on D'Iberville Police Department's agenda is to keep traffic flowing as Sangani Boulevard is widened from three lanes to five lanes.
There will also be signal improvements with the installation of a traffic light on the east entrance of Walmart.
As construction begins, one thing is important to remember--patience
"Show some patience. We're all in this together and we have a good traffic plan in place and just be safe," said Captain Jones.
The construction was originally set to start on January 7, but officials are now saying it will probably begin the middle of January. It's supposed to take nine months to complete.
