ON THE ROAD

It usually takes retiree Victoria Lyons 20 minutes to drive to her dentist's office in west Bradenton.

But, recently, the Longboat Key resident did not make it off the islands.

"I got to Coquina Beach and traffic just stopped," Lyons said. "I was sitting there for at least a half hour. It was obvious we weren't going to move. I turned around, went back home and called the dentist to cancel my appointment."

Variations of Lyons' lament were heard up and down the barrier islands and beach towns of Longboat Key, Anna Maria, Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach this season.

On the mainland, residents who looked forward to weekend trips to the beach often found the two drawbridges in Manatee County virtual parking lots. Exasperated drivers turned around and headed home.
