Impossible to navigate the Grove
You can't get though Tigertail at 27th Avenue and that may be closed for months, so you're directed up SW 27th Avenue, which is another mess. One of the workers there admitted to us that it's a mess with no planning involved, almost a free for all.
On Friday and every Friday, those idiots who work for the City, who pick up the lawn clippings block almost every major street, so as you try to get around them, you can't, you have to just sit and wait.
This crew shown on Grand Avenue was working on Friday, blocking the street, they are installing some sort of digital billboard at the bus stop near Grand and Virginia. Just what we need, a digital ad right as you enter Coconut Grove. There were back on Sunday, the photo below was taken then.
And then on Friday afternoon, after I navigated my way from the North Grove to the South Grove, I thought I was all set only to hit a road block on Douglas Road, near Ingram Highway.
Bird Avenue (which has street signs up now saying SW 30 Avenue, weird) was to have had work started but the businesses were not having it. At first I thought it made sense to do it all at once, but living and trying to drive through it now I see it doesn't make sense. Luckily they have put off that project until the summer of 2015.
The other side of US1 is a mess in places and on Sunday, coming south to north there was a long few mile backup on Old Cutler Road due to some incident not to far from the Coco Plum Circle. Help!
I guess my friends David and Harry (isn't that a candy company?) have it right. It's time to bicycle everywhere. Even the trolley we would so much love to get would be delayed in this traffic nightmare enveloping us.
