Police called to handle traffic for holiday lights along Girvin Road
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – In the weeks leading up to Christmas, it’s bumper-to-bumper along Girvin Road -- the homes are all plugged-in to the season, drawing carloads of people from all over to impressive light displays. But Michael Bielamowicz, a resident, said something different happened Saturday night around 10:30 p.m.“Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office pulled up on Girvin Road, started, apparently, directing traffic. The longtime resident of the neighborhood says when people comes into their neighborhood, they can access both sides of the community. “And when JSO came they sort of blocked them off, diverted them to go down on either Girvin Road north or south, he said. The neighborhood keeps the lights up through New Year’s and possibly through the first week of January.
