Traffic Problem Much Improved
The long lines of traffic on State Road 776 outside Charlotte Sports Park were gone Friday at the Rays’ second home game of the Grapefruit League Season.
After experiencing problems at Wednesday’s home opener, the Rays, along with officials from Charlotte County and the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Department, met for 45 minutes to address the problems.
“It’s much better today,” said Michael Kalt, Rays senior vice president, development and business.
Kalt complimented the work of both agencies by saying: “They’ve been great to work with from Day 1.”
The Rays more than doubled the staff to help eradicate the problem. Kalt also cited the learning curve by the team’s many season-ticket holders.
“People learn,” he said.
