I encourage anyone who thinks it should be a 3 lane road, to come on out and watch traffic for a day. My office window looks out at Rose street, and I have witnessed some pretty scary driving during this construction. People in wrong lanes regularly. People passing busses that are stopped for loading/unloading passengers, right out through the cones and into oncoming traffic. Imagine that when the cones aren't there, how many people would do this. The people that do abide by the rules today, have been lined up two blocks deep, waiting on the bus. 3 lanes is not safe! With 4 lanes, at least there is a flowing lane of traffic.
go to their website if you want updated info. signs don't say anything about that
Why didn't they contact the current Coroner?
This guy lives in an alternate plane of reality
Don't waste your time with City Hall on the goathead "issue". The Railroad owns the right of way, and the City will tell you as much. They drive a big truck down the tracks once a year, and that is their idea of maintenance. The trees, also fall into their right of way. It took a safety issue, after a wind storm, to get the City to step up and trim them back.
It's great to hear that the Sheriff is up to date on labor practice, but let's not break our arm patting ourselves on the back....Geesh
Let's look at the economic loss to the city. I work for a small business on Rose. This project is expected to last 2 years. We anticipate that we will lose 25% of our business during this time, because of traffic flow and inconvienence. Not a scientific study, just a real life thinking study/scenario. With that 25% loss, the city will lose out on 2.4% taxes collected from the business. Spread that out to the 10-12ish retail business' on Rose, and I'm thinking that will result in a $72000-112000 loss to the city in collected taxes.
A special THANK YOU, to the Spiess Family, for all their hardwork and sacrifices. Great environment and experience at a reasonable price. I encourage everyone to make a trip out and support the M-F Drive-In! Enjoy a night with your loved ones....and the Spiess Family!
oh, just ask for more taxes. you know you want to. say it's for road maintenance
Just because the law/ordinance does't make sense, doesn't mean you can go all willy-nilly and do what you please. There are plenty of business owners downtown, and off the strip, that are upset with the city ordinance, but they don't go paint a mural or put up illegal signage on Saturdays to see if they'll get away with it on by the time Monday comes around.
