Opinion: MLK Jr. Boulevard is disgrace to namesake, needs maintenance

I have been traveling Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard for years and am appalled at the continued poor upkeep of this road by the city of Gainesville.

It is a shame and disgrace to the memory of the man this road is named after and the way the good folks who live on this road and the public in general who travel this road have been treated regarding the lack of concern and care for this road.

I would hope in the near future that the Gainesville officials who have to do with the upkeep of roads in the city would take into account the terrible condition of this road and take action to correct this problem that has been let go for so many years.
