Trolley construction has residents concerned

some residents saying they don’t want another san jacinto plaza! … which is more than a year past its original deadline. open it’s a story developing now: 00-10 22-30 00:14 i’m excited to see them refurbished. i think they’re going to be beautiful. of course i’m not excited about the construction and the disruption to traffic but it will be worth it i’m sure. vanessa aguilar lives right in front of the trolley route. and a portion of stanton leading to her home is among the first closures. 01:00 it’s going to affect my every day life 02:55 we’re definitely going through some growing pains so i understand why people get upset and complain. it is inconvenient but there’s no other place you can go where that’s not going to happen. so it’s worth it. vanessa and others we spoke with just ask one thing: that the project doesn’t lag more than the expected three years of construction. 03:09 i just hope that they keep this project on track so that it doesn’t turn into another san jacinto. i’d like it to be more like the ballpark as opposed to san jacinto. i don’t mind going through the growing pains but i’d like to know that there’s an end in sight. this time, it’s not the city handling the project. rather, the camino real regional mobility authority. 01:56 and i’m really hoping that they do consider connecting it to juarez because i think that that would be incredlible. i mean it’s just going to make the area and the city more metropolitan. extending the line to juarez is something the city may consider in the future. rember the state is funding the 97-million dollar project. the camino real regional mobility authority hired a local pr firm who is having weekly meetings to inform people about closures. and also canvassing affected streets before closures – giving people bilingual flyers. and again the trolley and san jacinto are not handled by the same people. but on kvia dot com, our viewers are still sounding off on san jacinto plaza! juan is referring to construction bids when he says: ” the people of el paso only have themselves to blame. they won’t unite and pressure the city government to allow competition.” from janette: “the emperor’ death star was probably built faster than san jacinto.” and shane says: “t years later… we had some delays in the parts need and it is going to be a couple of more months.” join the conversation now and look for your comments on abc- seven at nine on the c-w with bob harp and nichole gomez. as
