The long awaited paving of Lagoon Street has finally commenced. On Wednesday, May 4, workers were seen by the San Juan Statue blocking off the street as work commenced for the paving of the road.

According to councilor Nano Guerrero the paving of the road will be done in phases. Phase I will be from Lagoon Street (Richies Store/K-mart Supermarket) to the intersection of Spider Lily Street (High School).

“Our goal is to reach to the Boca del Rio Bridge, but in order to do so financing is needed,” commented Councilor Guerrero. “We would like to ask the kind cooperation of the public to respect the area that is being worked on and use the alternative road ways so that work on the road can progress as quickly as possible.”

The road is about 25 feet wide and a side walk of four feet will be made for easier traffic and pedestrian flow. The paving of the road will be done similar to the Angel Coral Street, which was made of concrete slabs. It is estimated that Phase I of the paving of the street should be done in a period of two months.

For the meantime this is the only part of the road that will be done until finances become available the rest of the work on the road will continue. The repairing of other main streets on the island will also be addressed. Contractor for the work on the road is Medina’s Constructions.

    Financing is needed?  Are you kidding me?  There are MILLIONS missing from the budgets all over this country.  This is just ridiculous!

    How nice of the UDP to further their pre-election campaigning with more overdue projects around town. New;y painted park benches, new playgrounds, fresh paint on the curbs and speed bumps.

    Tip your hat to them, they may just fool the masses into electing them again!

    It would be very wise to have all the households on Lagoon Street all the way to the Boca Del Rio to hook up  the pipes for their homes or businesses to the BWSL sewer pipeline now before the road is paved.  It will be a huge error not to do so as this will mean major problems to hook up later when that area of town is connected to the sewer line.  Just some wise advise to the good Councilor in charge.

    If everyone would pay their taxes then the town board would not have financial problems. Come on people!!!! We all want the best and for that we all have to pay.  So do your part and pay your taxes.

    clearly another political ploy! this is nothing short of taking the residents of this island for a bunch of fools.  recall when days before the town council elections that very same street was marked up as if to be paved.  Elsa Paz on the radio was saying that only local residents would be hired.  Elections came, she won and it was abandoned.  The ploy worked.

    As for taxes not being collected as someone claimed is all bogus and the cry that elsa always makes.  Pure baloney.  What we are about to find out soon is the rampant financial mismanagement that exists currently at the town council.  Millions of dollars unaccounted for and when it comes to light we will all see that it is perhaps the most bankrupt council in the entire nation.  This will not make only local news but national news. 

    You all wait and see
