City should rethink Boundary Street project

newsroom@islandpacket.comJune 5, 2014 

Please, before the asphalt is ripped up and driver profanity ensues, will one or two of the five city fathers (mothers) explain the Boundary Street project? How will the current 35,000 cars that use the road daily be squeezed down from the current five lanes to two lanes without constant chaos?

How will drivers get to business driveways if lanes are not provided? It seems U turns will be made mandatory.

Palmetto trees in the medians may seem small-town cute, but exasperated drivers will think otherwise.

What happens to traffic flow when fender benders occur? How will emergency vehicles get through?

What happened to the idea of commercially sized traffic circles? Won't traffic lights on two lanes cause serious traffic backups?

Common sense says this entire project should be rethought before irreparable damage is done to driver navigability and commerce.
