Flagler Shore is no boon to our downtown

Project Flagler Shore is a disgrace to our beautiful downtown.

Rarely have I seen anyone on the east two lanes of Flagler Drive, but walkers and joggers still use the sidewalk. Driving south on Flagler Drive the other day, the lead car was moving at 5 miles per hour, which meant the six cars behind had to drive 5 mph, too.

I shudder to drive along our once-beautiful street because it looks like the land of fairgrounds. It’s ugly, it’s not conducive to the joy of a drive along the waterway and it’s certainly not benefiting commuters.

How about resurfacing Flagler Drive from Banyan to Third Street? That would be money wisely spent.
