The battle between APS, the neighbors by a middle school and the city over how to fix a traffic problem is now boiling over.
On Wednesday, the district brought in heavy machinery to start construction against the wishes of neighbors and City Council.
APS says they’re moving forward because of safety issues.
But News 13 obtained an email sent Tuesday, the same day APS was holding a news conference at Jefferson about the traffic problem there.
In the email, the assistant principal tells staff, -"If you are (on) duty in the front today, please do not worry about traffic support."
Superintendent Winston Brooks denied the district was trying to make the traffic situation look worse for the media.
"I guess that's one way to read this," Brooks said. "The other way to read it is that, you know, instead of traffic support today, be present for the press conference."
Councilor Isaac Benton sponsored a resolution to halt the project that passed in a 7-1 vote this week.
He says he's shocked APS is moving forward despite this.
“Never seen anything like it," Benton said. “I'm just not sure how they think this road is going to come out onto Lomas Boulevard.”
What the city does next depends on whether APS shows up to the meetings that were called for in the resolution.
