"city officials should start promoting use of the underpass at Wellington Avenue"
City officials will then need to step up and improve Middle Waitsburg Road west of Blue Mountain drive. Ownership of this stretch of road has been disputed between the city and county, but it's obvious that the road is inside the city limits and there is a city sewer line running under the north edge of this road. The roadway itself is primitive and unsafe, with a crumbling shoulder and potholes causing drivers to swerve into the oncoming lane.
As for the intersection at Hwy 12 and Lower Waitsburg Road, the proposed traffic revisions are a joke. The only logical solution is an overpass or underpass to handle the increased traffic volume that these new developments will bring.
Night glow is scheduled for 6:45 pm on a Friday evening, I think it is the perfect day for this to occur. But they can't please all of the people all of the time.
Ah, horse pucky!
One factor to the increased use that was not mentioned in the story is our VA Medical Center property. They are using city water while replacing the water tower during construction of the new state nursing home. I wonder how much that affected the total usage for the month of June?
This is not a fix, only a temporary band aid. What really needs to happen with this intersection is the construction of an overpass and associated exit/on ramps. There will be an estimated 300 houses built on the north side of Hwy 12 in this area and the proposed State solution will not be adequate once this area is developed.
Humility. Try it some time.
Just like everything else you post on here Paco, you are WRONG again. My name is not Christopher, but I do have Christ like qualities.
