I have seen firsthand the decrease in business resulting in pain from road closings and I am concerned about my neighbors. I don't know why anyone would dismiss the situation so callously. No need to continue it is clear how you feel.

Other than complaining and making others feel bad about their acceptance of reality, what's your solution?

I don’t pretend to understand how to replace a bridge but it would have been nice to leave the foot path/bike path in place and stage in such a way as to at least allow foot and bike traffic.

I can already see that the traffic in Eastern Seagrove has gone to nothing. The restaurants on the east side of 395 are going to be screwed and I feel badly for them. I will support them more than ever but it takes tourism to keep them afloat. The comments regarding the time allowed for planning ring hollow. Covid 19 would have soaked up any and all reserves for most of these businesses and now they get hit again. It’s a shame.

In business I have to create solutions that solve multiple problems at once with the least amount of harm…apparently not a government concern.

Hello, eastside 30A folks! I understand everyone's concern about businesses, etc. Those of us on the western side of things have experienced this on and off for several years. We've had at least 3 bridges replaced west of Grayton and it was quite the pain. I hate to say it, but it had to be done and there's really not much you can do about it. Complaining won't help. I'm sure this has been scheduled for a long time. On the bright side, the projects are usually completed a bit earlier than scheduled. Hang in there.

You mean like being aware of things that affect your business like road closures? This has been noticed for literally years.

I just don’t understand how anyone can argue that measures could be taken to mitigate the economic impact. But of course I underestimate how stupid much of the public is so here we are.
