CAPE CORAL-Fla.-Kristie Hilberg's life changed forever last fall when her daughter Alexie Krill died after ending up in this canal.
Since then Cape Coral city leaders have been considering how to make the intersection safer. Monday night they agreed to spend 46-thousand dollars on minor enhancements to the intersection. Hilberg said that's not enough. Mayor John Sullivan agrees.
"For the sake of safety I am sorry that they decided only to do minor fixes," said Sullivan.
He said the city council should have approved the entire 300-thousand dollar project that would have included the guardrail.
Hilberg said, "I am not going to stop. If they think I will I won't. I am glad e are getting the 46k of enhancements, but that still doesn't keep cars out of the canal."
The Mayor says the minor enhancements should be complete by next month.
