3 WAYS TO FIX CRESTVIEW TRAFFIC ISSUES

Want to fix Crestview's afternoon traffic problems?

●Make PJ Adams/Antioch Road four lanes, from Route 85 to I-10.

●Make an I-10 interchange at Antioch Road. You could do it so that both east- and westbound traffic exits and enters the interstate on the west side of Antioch without disturbing the existing structures too much.

●Make Route 85 six lanes, plus a turn lane in the middle, from Redstone Avenue (where Regions Bank/Walgreens is located), all the way south to Live Oak Church/Antioch Road.

Will you have to spend a lot of money to buy the land? Yeah.

Will you have to bulldoze some existing buildings? Probably.

Is it in the best interests of everyone in Crestview? Absolutely.

It won't eliminate all of the traffic problems, but it will be a drastic improvement.

‘FABULOUS’ FALLEN DEPUTY SCULPTURES

While I am thrilled to read this article and see the artist's smiling face, I am not one bit surprised!

Bill oversaw the remodel of our office building earlier this year. He is a wonderful, humble man who blushed every time we called him our "artist," and I am glad to call him friend.

Our community is fortunate to have people like him. Fabulous work, Bill!
