OK, we get it; Camp Murray needs a new gate. But have they really thought this out?
We are already experiencing heavy traffic on Portland Avenue; do we really need to make it worse?
This gate relocation is really a lose/lose situation. We are not going to gain more business from the soldiers by them using Portland, and they are not going to get there any faster by using it (except those who are speeding).
Next time, the miitary should check with the local residents to see if they agree with their idea, instead of just assuming that we would cave in. This is not being a good neighbor.
