Manatee County too slow on road construction

November 7, 2013 

This is an open letter to all members of the Manatee County Board of Commissioners.

Regarding the road construction on Ninth Street East from 53rd to 57th, this construction and limited access to a major thoroughfare has been under construction for months -- and no activity has been visibly recently. What's the story behind this unnecessary delay?

Once again commissioners have failed to take the wellbeing of the general public in consideration.

Drivers are cutting through the Winn Dixie parking lot and causing more delays. Let's see some action on this project. It probably took less time to complete the Florida Turnpike than to complete this project of just a few blocks.

Hopefully, the voters will remember this, along with other blunders by the commissioners, when election time rolls around.
