The battle lines are drawn between Pembroke Pines residents and Southwest Ranches town leaders.
A vigil is planned for this evening at 6:30 outside Southwest Ranches Town Hall.
Diego Medina says he's forced to pick up his wife's fight against three gates that force Pembroke Pines residents onto U.S. 27.
He remembers how Maritza Medina feared the highway.
She died last week on that road when her Mercedes was T-boned by a speeding, suspected double-murderer.
Medina says if the gates hadn't been installed, his wife wouldn't have been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
He and his neighbors want them to come down; however, Southwest Ranches town leaders say the gates aren't to blame... the driver fleeing from cops is.
