If there was ever an example for not giving up, this would be it. It may take a while, but it's possible to get things changed here in Jacksonville. Keep up the great work, everybody!

What's next?  ;D

You know what I just thought about....those signs will probably be coming down once they start construction on that section of I-95.

Seems the drag was as much the city as FDOT. As someone who works in the public sector I can understand why these things drag on. There is so much red tape and bureaucracy to wade through it can get ridonkulous. What emerges from the tone of the emails though is that FDOT was open to the ideas and responsive while the city was just meh. Great work though guys! It's all in the details.

Persistance gets results... great job! :)
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

don't worry...given FDOT's funding situation and normal delays, that project likely won't start for at least 5 years

I honestly do not see how FDOT is even going to be able to do anything in the next few years.

LOL.  Nice.  The official countdown will begin when Steve sends that email out.
