John Leenders has driven West Dublin Street for many years. He knows what it was like before heavy trucks started hauling dirt from a work site to the Duke Energy Complex a few miles away.
“It’s not the same quality as the old road that was here,” he said, matter-of-factly.
David Patten agrees. He, like Leenders, doesn’t live on Dublin Street but uses it regularly, headed to Dunnellon or Ocala.
