HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Our first stop this week is Zierdt and Martin Roads, just outside Gate 7 of Redstone Arsenal. If you drive there in the morning, you know all too well how the traffic can back up, especially on Martin Road.

One viewer commented on our See, Click, Fix site that the traffic light doesn't stay green long enough for traffic going onto the Arsenal.

The City of Huntsville's Engineering Department looked into it and says it's monitored that traffic light several times. It found that the cars going east on Martin Road and south on Zierdt Road are about equal during the morning rush hour. Until the Martin and Zierdt Road projects are finished, you can expect the wait to be long.

Now, to downtown Huntsville and the road projects there. You may have noticed work on Washington and Clinton Streets. We've had several people wonder what happened?

The workers are gone. The cones are gone, but it's still really rough on those two streets.

Officials at the mayor's office offered assurances that the project is not finished yet. So, look for the road work to crank up again.

We'll keep an eye on it and let you know when it is finished.
