It would have been a better outcome for both parties involved if they had met on a well engineered street.

Could have. Reducing traffic lanes add safety for everybody. This is the second pedestrian that has been hit on Rose since the city failed to improve safety on that corridor.

Very unfortunate the lane configuration on Rose Street will result in more of these collisions. Too many lanes of traffic. The City of Walla Walla really should have listened to their engineers.

The irony of driving thru the new roundabout on Plaza to save on the tax dollars that will be paying for it for the next 35 years if the bond package does find a supermajority.

Well, they do pump the gas in Oregon.

With any luck this deal will fall apart. Last minute messing with I-1351 (class size reduction) has left the budget with a $1bil hole in education and fulfilling McCleary requirements.

To secure the approval of the transportation package, House members would have to pass a spending plan as well as muster the 60 percent support necessary to approve bonds.

"A" Street is another intersection on Hwy 12 that needs to be improved. Another $25 mil that will need to be found after a proposed 33% gas tax increase. I don't mind paying more for gas but a return on safety is needed.
