Fort Wayne Doesn't Know What Traffic Is

Tracy Warner wants you to get creative:
Chicago drivers have long bemoaned the bumper-to-bumper crawl on the Dan Ryan Expressway as "Cryin' on the Ryan." It's too bad that it's almost impossible to find a good word to rhyme with "Jefferson," because people who live in southwest Fort Wayne will be displaying their own form of sadness starting Monday, when Jefferson Boulevard shrinks to one lane in each direction in front of Time Corners for a bridge replacement.


Illinois or Bass roads may be suitable detours on the north and Engle or even Lower Huntington on the south, but there isn't a good way around Jefferson. So, commuters, it's time to start thinking up a Jefferson Bouelvard equivalent to "Cryin'on the Ryan;" how about The Jefferson Creep?

You'll have plenty of time to think up something better while you're waiting. Construction will take five months, so there may be snow on the ground when the road opens back up to four lanes of freedom.

It's too early in the morning for us to come up with something catchy that rhymes with Jefferson. How about "bridge" instead?
