Construction on Route 50 Bridge Slows Holiday Shoppers

Posted: Updated:

QUEENSTOWN, Md.- One thing more frustrating than long lines at the register, is backed-up traffic. That is exactly what shoppers are dealing with at the Queenstown Premium Outlets.

The Route 50 bridge is in the process of being improved, but the traffic on Route 50 outside of the Queenstown Outlets is getting worse.

Allyson Oliver was there shopping Monday but said she will not be back until construction is complete.

"Frustration was setting in just now because I didn't bring my GPS because I knew exactly where I was going to, but when I got lost I was like, 'Oh man,'" Oliver said.

Oliver said a lot of people will choose to shop elsewhere.

"I think it will deter a lot of people from coming to the outlets," she said.

Margaret Schabdach of Wye Mills said that on Black Friday the construction on the Route 50 bridge made it more hectic than usual.

"Traffic was bad...You could get in but you had a long line," she said.

Even with backed-up traffic, Margaret said the outlets are by far the best place to shop and she does not see it slowing people down.

"I wouldn't think so because I have been here while they are working and it never seems to stop people from coming out," Schabdach said.

Construction on the Route 50 bridge is expected to be completed by the summer of 2013.
