While many people are happy the bridge on Mt. Vernon Street by the Lyndon School and West Roxbury Library is being repaired - it has possibly been stopping voters from heading into the library's polling site.
With candidate signs propped on construction fencing, supporters greeted voters outside the library on Tuesday.
Several vehicles were seen double-parking by the construction allowing senior citizens to get into the library, and some felt the construction was stopping more seniors from voting.
"West Roxbury in the summer - Centre Street is not as congested when the fall season starts," said Judy Settana, a West Roxbury Neighborhood Council member, while holding a Dan Conley for mayor sign, outside the library. "I really do wonder why the state did not start the construction sooner... for school buses and children."
Settana said that a school bus recently got stuck between the barriers set up at the beginning of Mt. Vernon Street at Centre.
Standing next to Settana was Teri Cunningham, a John Connolly for mayor supporter, said she was present when the school bus got stuck and that no one got hurt.
"Why they waited so long (to do the construction), not for the election, but for the safety of the students," said Cunningham. "It's a damn shame because Centre Street becomes so congested in the fall."
Both Cunningham and Settana said they felt like the construction was stopping handicapped people from voting on Tuesday.
