Bridge Project Has Business Owners Worried

Stateline businesses are worried how an upcoming construction project will affect them. The Appleway Bridge will be closed and torn down starting in May in order to build a new one. The problem is that the bridge is what connects Stateline to I90, and many of their customers. Here's the story from KXLY TV.

Considering that Stateline is made up of bars, tobacco stations, and a legendary strip club (for around here), I think they'll fare okay, as it seems to be somewhat of a destination location for people looking to buy cheap cigarettes and gas, and well, other things. Sure, it will be tight for many businesses but I think they'll pull through. What's your thoughts on this?
