TOP COMMENT: A second south-north road is necessary

Crestview is in terrible need of a second south-north road around the city and with ramps connecting to I-10.

The issue of the tanker that turned over at the Highway 85/I-10 ramp is only one example of drivers being trapped in traffic for hours and those of us who had no other way to get to work or for critical doctor's appointments.

I have seen the shutdown of Highway 85 due to accidents many times in the past, and many times the shutdown is the result of no more than just a fender bender.

It's way past due to start constructing another N-S highway.

Other cities in Florida have found funding for new roads through state and federal government grants; therefore, there is no reason or excuse that the city leaders of Crestview can't also get the funding required to build a new road.
