City Staff are recommending the Council move forward with the plan to eliminate Left Turns from 141 and State Bridge Rd.
In essence, they will be taking two left turns in every direction, consolidating them to one lane, and then stopping traffic (with new lights) to let these vehicles make a U turn and proceed straight.
If two lanes of left turning traffic are not enough, how will one lane be?
How will be adding 4 more traffic lights within the intersection area make the traffic flow better?
This “innovative intersection concept” will cost taxpayers $500,000 for the design fee. Citizen input will be sought AFTER this money has been invested, not before.
The Mayor has NOT held a town hall to solely discuss the traffic congestion and seek Citizen input for solutions.
The Mayor has held Town Halls and community meetings to discuss the “District”, a plan to redevelop Tech Park into a Urban downtown. Much of staff’s time is consumed with planning redevelopment of private property. Creating more development, will NOT solve our traffic issues.
We here at the JCP would like to see the lights synchronize better. Lengthen the time of lights for more cars to go through! Let’s try that before wasting more tax dollars.
What do you think will relieve congestion on 141 & State Bridge rd? What are your traffic solutions for other areas within the City?
