On the second day of the Limestone Street construction project, about seven or so business owners have banded together and filed a lawsuit against the city of Lexington.

They claim promises of unlimited uninterrupted access for deliveries, pedestrians, and other vehicles were made to owners from the city.

Those owners say the city is not making good on it's promises and it's only been a couple days since work began.

In the lawsuit they are asking for a temporary injunction to reopen South Limestone and suspend the work.

It also asks for compensation for the damages already incurred.

The lawsuit also cites specific examples of how delivery trucks were denied access on Wednesday.

The owners say they can't function without trucks getting in and out.

David Jones, the owner of Soundbar, says filing this lawsuit was a last resort, but says time is of the essence and he anticipates in less than a month, businesses will close it's doors for good.

A spokesperson for the mayor's office tells 27 NEWSFIRST the city has no comment on the lawsuit at this time.
