      What do you think about the Forrester Parkway Extension Project?

      For months the Lee County Commission has been debating whether or not to make Glendale Road the route for the Forrester Parkway extension.

      Well, Tuesday night the board approved the go ahead.

      Commissioners feel this will alleviate traffic, but residents say this idea will bring nothing but a headache.

      Darian Eckler says, "there are so many kids and it's summer so what if a kid runs out in the road and they're playing and a ball runs out in the road. What are they going to do? Stop the construction?

      The total budget for the project is $5.2 million.
