Residents Want Road Sign Relocated
Dozens of people showed up for a public meeting with FDOT to ask that one sign be moved back. For Southbound traffic, the foundation has been laid for a sign that alerts drivers when fog is less than a mile away.
Keeping the sign in it's current spot allows drivers one chance to make a U-Turn before hitting the fog.
Some residents said they need more time to make a decision, but officials said moving the sign would mean some drivers may not see it and would add additional expenses to move it.
One concerned resident, Ed Buckley, said, "I don't think traveling, going 65 miles an hour with kids in the background and it's probably already bad weather giving them as little time as possible to turn around isn't a very smart decision."
FDOT Engineer, Peter Vega, said a lot of discussion and thought went into deciding where the signs go but they will take these comments into consideration.
Officials did not comment on how much it would cost to move the signs, but 30% of the work is completed and officials said all the signs should be put up by Spring 2015.
