Candice Robinson uses Highway 63 almost every day. She says she’ll have to plan ahead for her usual commute.

“I’ll be getting up early, and having a lot of earlier days. Possibly just getting to work earlier just to make sure I’m there in time," Robinson said.

Another Highway 63 commuter told KOMU 8 there are several alternatative routes to bypass the construction.
