Meeting regarding Main Highway drainage work

There is a community meeting regarding the Drainage Improvement Project for Main Highway. The public works project will go from McFarlane Road down to Royal Road. The community meeting being conducted by the Public Works and Waste Management Department is being held at City Hall (3500 Pan American Drive) on Tuesday, May 19 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

The meeting will provide information on the upcoming project. This project consists of the retrofitting of the existing drainage system, which has exceeded its life expectancy and has been compromised by tree root intrusion. Plans, maps and more will be available at the meeting. A presentation and then a Q&A session will follow.

The project is expected to begin in June. It's a county, not city project. It's expected to take seven months to complete. Traffic will changed to be one-way in each direction, heading north, you will take Main Highway and going south, traffic will be rerouted down Grand Avenue to Douglas Road. The worst times of course will be rush hour and when schools open and close. There are a number of schools on the Main Highway route.

Sewer pipes are not being worked on, it is all stormwater drainage. For more info, please call Francisco Gonzales at the county at 305-375-4772.

Perhaps they should wait until 2050, when 27th AV might be finished, to start on Main Hwy, from 2050 till 2070.

There is no way this project should be undertaken during the school year(s). If it must be done, do it in the summer of a period of, say, a normal lifetime.

Traffic during the school year on Main Highway and Douglas (even LeJeune) is an adventure at best.

It would be nice if our county officials would put some thought into this.
