After listening to the Mayor's cheer-leading Chamber of Commerce speech at the "State of the City" Lecture last Thursday night...we though everything was really cool here in the "City of Excellence". What with all the (10!) national surveys the P.R. staff has arranged for Mayor Harry's deplorables to bask in the glory of.... Today we got a city newsletter at 1:06 PM informing us that the lovable folks at KC/Southern Railway are just going to stop cold(!) all traffic on Coit for 3 days 3/12-14. How about if "Mayor of Excellence" pick up a phone and tell the railroad boys they don't close all 6 lanes of a very major city artery all at once and, instead alternate the closing and work at night.
This is not the way to run a city Mr. Mayor! Police, Fire, Schools and Traffic count, oh wait, the Mayor's in Washington D.C. this week with the sanctuary city mayors for the second time in a month.
If you love the thump of driving over the railroad crossing at Coit Road between Plano Parkway and Mapleshade Lane, you'll need to find a new thrill soon. Monday, March 12 through Wednesday, March 14, the Kansas City Southern Railway Company is reconstructing this at-grade railroad crossing. Follow signs to alternate routes, but be aware no through traffic from north or south is permitted at the crossing.
