Many a gray hair and headaches have accompanied motorists as they traverse the land of signs and lights known as the Highway 39 twinning project.
However, such trial and tribulation may be coming to an end, as Steve Shaheen with the Ministry of Highways pointed to a light at the end of the tunnel.
"The pavement marking folks are out there, putting on the finishing touches. We expect that to be open in the next day or two."
While no special opening ceremonies are apparently planned for the occasion, he noted that there will be many benefits for drivers.
"It's going to make for a safer commute for many residents in the southeast."
The construction has been ongoing since earlier this year. It was originally projected to be completed by the end of October, but that obviously didn't pan out. Things were slowed somewhat by an early onset of winter.
