Recent construction on Stacy Road has created a lot of traffic.

“It makes me stressed out with all the construction because I’m already not a good driver,” sophomore Taylor DeCarlo said. “I sometimes try to go different ways to avoid driving on Stacy.”

It is planned to be under construction for two years.

“The City of Allen and the Town of Fairview are working to improve the intersections along Stacy,” said Danielle Gregory, engineer assistant for the town of Fairview. “Fairview is also sending out construction information to a Fairview email list, and HOAs. When possible, use alternative routes to avoid Stacy Road. When using Stacy Road, allow yourself some extra time as this construction zone is an ever-changing environment with unknown factors that could delay traffic.”

    Worst planning of building a road ever, called manager in November and he said first lane would have concrete and drivable by December, it is now 4 months later and still no concrete, what he said would take 1 month has taken 5 months and counting . This road has been tore up for 2 years and still not even 25 percent done, no tractors or workers are visible for weeks at a time, and when one stage done the next set of workers do not come for weeks

    No activity on road in 3 weeks, called and was told tar cannot be laid because sewer drain cannot be laid because of potential gasline hit, was told gas line needs to be identified but that drillers are afraid to hit a gas line, so neither group are working the problem, no gas trucks, no plows, nobody holding their feet to the fire to get it done. This is par for the course where no activity is done on the road for 2 to 4 weeks at a time causing this road to take 3 years to build and counting. The worst management of anything I have ever seen in my entire life.

    There has been no fix to the problem on Stacey road where no concrete has been laid, nobody can fix the problem, and nobody cares about removing the excess pikes of dirt and no activity during the entire month of December and most of January, shocking.
