Glickstein got support from…

Letters to the Editor: Freight train worries are not unfounded

    The public is rightly concerned about how much more freight traffic there will be on the Florida East Coast Railway tracks with the opening of a deeper port in Miami and the widening of the Panama Canal.

    With the revitalization and rejuvenation of downtowns throughout the tri-county area, there is more motor vehicle traffic. And since many towns and cities lay aside the FEC tracks and are near the Intracoastal Waterway as well, motorists must deal with both the inconvenience of…

    “We’re studying whether individual roads can accommodate parking,” City engineer Isaac Kovner said.
