The road works have frustrated motorists with major traffic jams during peak times.
But affected businesses are generally supportive of the construction of a new pedestrian refuge at the intersection of Gordon and Hollingworth Street.
The project was expected to take 10 weeks but has been delayed due to wet weather earlier in the month (February).
It is now expected to be finished by early April.
Toby Patrick from Patrick Auto Group said the new pedestrian crossing once finished will be "good for local business".
"It will make it a little bit safer to get across the main road."
Owner of Sports Power on Gordon Street Teale Bryan said he hadn't noticed a downturn in business.
"We have been very proactive with our marketing though," he said.
Mr Bryan said while he expects some locals who know the back roads are probably avoiding the area, he isn't fussed.
"We are a destination store so people come here deliberately, because for example they need football boots."
Wild Culture Organics said the traffic jams have inadvertently helped get the word out about the new business.
"It has given the community an opportunity to slow down near the roundabout and get our name out there," said owner Michael Trevaskis.
All the business owners said consultation by Port Macquarie-Hastings Council had been adequate.
