Thank you, your photos have been one of the best features of the UB for many years.
Amazon Prime is pretty amazing. A Washington State company delivering with UPS, that has WA roots. It does not bode well for mall development
And yet, the City of Walla Walla with the Rose St. 4-lane option is maintaining unused road capacity while the public has told them they want 3-lanes with bike lanes.
Barracuda, I checked, there would be no additional cost in change orders. Love your enthusiasm, your facts are just off.
Wait a minute. Last time a developer came to town it drained the City road repair budget when they built the entrance to the "mall" on Poplar for over $300k. The signal has never been used.
The issue is road safety. Not bike lanes.
The City will be planting some new trees in Pioneer Park to maintain the urban tree canopy.
The trees are gone, but the discussion of a safer road should continue. Council has in it's possession a survey completed at the Fourth of July Celebration where 52% of the 266 respondents want to see 3 traffic lanes and bike lanes on Rose Street. Will they respond to public opinion and engineering standards? Has the new TBD tax been implemented properly?
I think traffic tickets go to pay for the court system, not roads. But I am still in favor of tickets for aggressive drivers and scofflaw cyclists who refuse to ride properly.
Of course you can only ride a bike properly if the roads are built properly.
The intersection of Wilbur and Pleasant is scheduled for rebuilding in the spring of 2014. There will be a 4-way stop installed which is significantly cheaper than a signal and should have a traffic calming effect.
