With Island Avenue blocked on the southeast at Venetian Way, it’s time to address another obstacle Belle Isle drivers have to maneuver around: the paver pothole at the crosswalk in front of Island Terrace.
The paver crosswalk is part of the big park renovation project the city did two years ago, and the drainage problems being addressed in front of the Grand Venetian are another part of that project legacy.
The crosswalk in front of Island Terrace began caving in several months ago, and a city crew took one stab at fixing. Obviously, they didn’t do a very good job. Hit this thing are more than 5 mph and it can jar your teeth!
It’s been like this for months. What does it take to get this fixed?
