The owner of a self-storage facility in Yuma, Ariz., is irate over ongoing road construction that has restricted access to his business.
Michael Perry, owner of AA Value Storage, told KYMA-TV his business has decreased by 90 percent since ground broke on the project several weeks ago. He calculates the loss thus far at $9,450.
The closure of Avenue 3E has made several businesses virtually inaccessible. Originally, two lanes were supposed to stay open in each direction, but to save money on traffic control, city officials decided to close the street entirely.
Perry and other local business owners are pushing for the city to come up with an alternative route so drivers can still access their properties. Business leaders will meet Friday to come up with a proposal.
