This project needs the date moved up. It was planned over 20 years ago when I first moved into the area. The road is handling more traffic including commercial heavy trucks, and is in constant need of repair. There have been street cave-ins, recurrent busted water pipes and cavernous potholes; this makes this hilly road a dangerous place to travel with icing in cold weather and treacherous when winter storms occur. There are not any alternative routes to take to avoid the dangerous areas. The retail offerings have improved but they will be under-utilized without adequate roadways.
