Meeting Scheduled To Discuss Longleaf Drive Improvements

June 8, 2021

A public meeting is planned for later this month to discuss improvements to Longleaf Drive in the area of Pine Forest High School and other school campuses.

Improvements will be discussed onĀ  Longleaf Drive from Pine Forest Road to Marcus Bayou Bridge will be held Wednesday, June 23 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Longleaf Elementary School, 2600 Longleaf Drive.

Longleaf Drive is being redesigned to include improved mobility for vehicles and pedestrians connecting our neighbors to schools, parks and businesses within the corridor. Improvements include roadway, drainage, lighting, bridge, landscaping and a new trail within the existing rights-of-way. This will be a meeting to share concerns and opportunities with county staff, including District 1 Commissioner Jeff Bergosh.

    10 Mile Road Neighbor – maybe because it is on the westside lower income areas? Asking for a lot of westside residents – lol!!

    The Longleaf extension has been designed many time over the last 20 years. Here is a link to the latest project design status, but it only goes to Hwy 29 at this time.

    These projects are pushed by whichever County Commisioner is in power at that moment in time. Once they leave office, who knows.

    True the state purchased the land over 20 years ago. The plan had sidewalks, lighting and drainage. Not sure why the project was not finished?

    Maybe this would be a good lead in to a discussion about the Longleaf Connector Project that I attended 3 public meetings for about 15 years ago. It was to connect Blue Angel Parkway at Pine Forest to Creighton Road where it dead ends after crossing I-110. We still need an alternate crosstown connector between 9 Mile Road and Bayou/Brent/Beverly/Michigan/Saufley Field.
