    Please finish the Berlin Myers Parkway. We are drowning in traffic and need some relief!!!
    We have been waiting for years as long time residents for this to be finished. The area around Knightsville is booming and the traffic on Central Avenue is backed up especially in the afternoon trying to get to Knightsville and the same in the mornings. The BMG parkway is greatly needed!!!
    Please please we need your help. Thank you for your consideration.
