Residents want to reroute trucks for planned construction

A handful of Brentwood Forest residents don’t want construction traffic on their roads, and spoke in favor of two bills at the Brentwood Board of Aldermen meeting Monday, though the bills were on hold and not voted on. They said they’re concerned about truck traffic, mainly on Eager Road, when construction begins on the planned, approximately 800-unit, Manhasset Village apartment complex in Richmond Heights, just across Eager from where they live. Ward 4 Alderman Tom Kramer has introduced the bills that would prohibit commercial traffic on Eager Road and others in the area. Both were recommended by the Public Safety Committee. Dorothy Needles was one of the Brentwood Forest residents expressing concern about commercial traffic.
