    Progress is being made to the work being done on Egan Drive, with the last inbound lane set to be paved Thursday.

    News of the North spoke with Jeremy Woodrow with the Department of Transportation:

    "The road construction continues on Egan Drive, as anyone who has driven on Egan Drive lately will have seen and experienced. The contractor SeaCon is doing their best to pave all the lanes from Salmon Creek to 10th Street, where to Douglas Island bridge is. Their goal on Thursday is to pave the last lane of traffic inbound. They'll start that after the Thursday morning commute around 8:30AM and expect to pave that through the day until that section is done. There may be some closures to the harbor entrances during that time and there will also be limited access onto 10th Street, actually onto Douglas bridge, so when they get close to that section of road drivers that need to use Douglas bridge to get onto Douglas will need to look for the detour signs telling traffic to use Glacier Highway to drive through the 10th Street intersection to cross the bridge."

    Video of the traffic backed up on Egan during Wednesday afternoon in the 4:00 hour:
