Sherri FeltsThis detour was very congested today. I suggest going straight into Wilson, not turning onto Ward (coming from Greenville) and go all the way around on the northern side of town. I did that on my return trip. Way better.

Heavy traffic is expected in Wilson today because of the detours from 264. If you must travel, expect heavy delays. See MoreSee Less

Edie WardLocal traffic still has to get to work so we will just have to deal with delays and be patient. Many people out there today were not.
