St. Marys City Councilman Gary Anderson briefly voiced his concern about the Rt. 255 construction project and the frequent traffic jams experienced by local drivers at a recent meeting.
He noted that traffic is sometimes backed up from Walmart to Dairy Queen, causing issues for students and employees attempting to get to work and school on time. Fellow C uncilman Greg Gebauer added emergency vehicles are also having difficulty in getting through traffic.
