A major parkway in Utah County has just been fully opened, and it's a relief to businesses along the route.

A host of politicians cut the ribbon on the newly expanded 800 North in Orem. The orange barrels are gone, and there are now six wide-open lanes to take motorists to and from the freeway to near the mouth of Provo Canyon.

It was truly a great day for car dealership owner Lee Berge. For 18 months, customers had to figure out how to even get to his business.

"In the long haul we do appreciate the efforts and the little bit of the aggravation that we went through," he said.

He says there was a drop in business, but they made it through the 18 months of construction, and now he's happy his business is along a nice, large, tree-lined parkway
