JERSEY CITY - Officials say drivers who normally take the Pulaski Skyway into Jersey City should have planned an alternate route by now.

"I come down 280. Takes me ten minutes. Now it's gonna take me an hour," says driver Franco Ignacio.

Ignacio commutes to Jersey City from Newark and he's got a backup plan. "Cut through Harrison, Kearny, North Arlington, We live towards that way. Anybody lives on the other side of Newark, cut through Bayonne, it costs a toll but sometimes it can be worth it."

People seem to be most upset about losing time and sitting in traffic only makes it worse. 

Jersey City commuter Duke Parmalee says it best. "I wish people the best. God knows you're gonna need it."
