Please be advised that this report covers the roads maintained by the City of Gainesville. For roads within Gainesville maintained by other agencies, please visit the following:

  • Are they going to reduce the bend in CBBoulevard N of Walmart? It’s not clear why they needed to put the severe bend there in the first place, but has it caused many accidents?

  • I realize this is a GNV CC release but they could have at least included a warning to city and county inhabitants that the poorly planned Hoggetowne Medieval Faire traffic will cause a huge traffic delay on SW Archer Road/NE State Rd 24 for three straight weekends! Hours of delay for fair attendees and residents! HOURS! Piss poor planning on the part of the event leadership and GNV and AC BOCC leadership to warn citizens to take the non existing alternate routes! I guess it means they could give cr$p less if you can’t pick up you child on time from school Fridays, or get to the grocery store and back home in less than two hours + during this time! Police presence for traffic control? Sitting in the patrol car due to cold weather! What A$$h$$$S (and I mean the private and city planners)!
