Massive street and sidewalk work has been going on for six months along Johnson Drive in Mission, and the mom and pop businesses on that street are feeling the pain of lost business. The work has shut off front-door access for many of them.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, we talk about how much the construction has changed these businesses, how they're coping and what the city is doing about the situation.

Guests:

  • Sandi Russell, co-owner of Twisted Sisters Coffee Shop on Johnson Dr.
  • Emily Randel, public information officer for the city of Mission.
