The street work
The job goes from the entrance to Mercy Hospital to Darwin Street, in front of The Fresh Market.
I think it's time to dust off our bicycles.
As for SW 27th Avenue, the County declares that the job will go on through June 2015, which of course could end up being December 2015 or beyond. The water and sewer department required special work to be done on the west side and that created a backlog of work. According to sources, the contractor is very slow and at times does not even return phone calls. When the west side of the road is done, it will be open and the east side will be worked on, which should not be as complicated and the work should go faster.
The "peanut" traffic circle" should be open when the west side is open and you'll be able to go on Tigertail from one side to the other, but of course, you'll have to go around the peanut, which is taking the place of the traffic light, which is there now.
The County seems to be upset over how slow the job is going, but other than talk about it, they don't seem to have been doing anything to push it along.
