Construction on Bill Bradford Rd, resulting in partial closure earlier this year, has impacted businesses and traffic on both ends of the road. Within the VF Outlet Mall, several businesses have reported a decline in customers due to the construction. Just recently, the road has opened up to one way traffic. Gary Jordan, owner of the Good News Bookstore located inside the mall, stated, “This time of year can be slow for us due to the Presidential Election for some reason, but there have been more customers lately. The road opening has helped us a little.” Road construction is projected to be finished before February of 2017.
