Last night Supervisor Higgins sent out an email titled “Route 15 Improvements from Leesburg to Montresor Road Approved”. Higgins goes on to state “after many years of work, I am pleased to inform you that improvements are finally coming to Route 15.” This statement was in alignment with other words oft repeated by Supervisor Higgins to include “we are making tremendous progress…”, “improvements are coming….”, “there has never been any other project with this much community outreach in the history of the county…”.
What we have on display are mere words and NO progress other than stating the 3.5 mile widening from Battlefield Parkway up to Montresor Road will be completed within 10 years!
Supervisor Higgins has not disclosed when the project will begin nor has he been demanding county staff to produce a project plan with a start date!
The residents, families and school children are more deserving than mere words without any substance behind them and our elected officials must be held accountable! There needs to be accountability AND action from our elected officials.
Please attend tonight’s community open house about the Route 15 Safety and Operational Study scheduled for Wednesday, September 26, 2018, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Lucketts Community Center, 42361 Lucketts Road. Let YOUR representatives know how you feel about the current timeline!
FIX ROUTE 15 NOW!!!
