ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- There could be a resolution to the construction frustration business owners expressed after finding out that the Department of Transportation was planning eight months worth of drainage work on King Street.
Business owner Bruce Maguire said city manager John Regan recommended that city commissioners delay the road work until after 2015, something Maguire and other business owners had already been championing.
Now, city commissioners will vote on the matter at their meeting on Monday, March 12. Maguire said all of the commissioners he's spoken with said they would vote in favor of delaying the work. He also mentioned that the DOT indicated it would accept the city's proposal.
Those business owners are also pushing to have power lines along about 1700 feet of the street moved underground, Maguire said.
