    If they build an overpass, I pray it’s higher than 10 feet or whatever the downtown tressel is, lol. I don’t even want to think about those types of delays

    Simple Solutions 4 Simple People…
    you folks should KNOW better ~ D.O.T. must be involved, DHSMV has to be on-site, all this, and much more… so, so, SO MUCH MORE~!

    Hundred$ of Thou$and$ in $tudies are mandated by the Legislature to their cronies, “silent partners”, asphalt contractors, “OrangeFlag Wavers”‘ support groups, Road Camp Prisoner’s Commissary Fund Replenishment, & others 2 numerous to mention

    Now what are they doing? They just replaced the tracks that are horrible on all vehicles to pass over. CSX has gazillions of money but can you only imagine the horror of traffic and time to build a flyover? Some companies would do a great job in record time but I bet this spot would take f-o-r-e-v-e-r being its so busy and gets so congested busy parts of each day.

    CSX routinely causes back ups and issues at this crossing..
    And politicians just don’t care about how a major traffic artery is impacted.

    How about they build a trestle so that we can do away with the traffic back ups from the train blocking traffic daily and then do the same for the neighbor hoods that the trains block constantly? It’s not like CSX couldn’t afford to spend a couple million or so improving the communities ability to travel with trains. Or we could start blocking train crossings as they do our streets constantly and only allow them access when we finish.

    this looks like a good spot for a flyover. it would be really helpful in allowing traffic flow in an dangerous area.
