    Mayor Bob Filner is going to halt a controversial street project that is causing an uproar in one San Diego neighborhood.

    Residents in the North Park area are upset about a construction project that's slowing down traffic and obstructing ambulance routes. 

    The residents say they were not consulted before construction started, and would have liked to be part of the discussion. 

    Disabled residents also say the detours force them to walk several blocks out of their way when they are getting around.

    The project was designed to control speed and traffic, but residents say there's a better option.

    Filner said stopping the project may cost money, although he did not specify how much money. 

    Councilman Todd Gloria will also work with the North Park Planning Committee to make sure residents are heard.
