Let them know solutions are in the mill

Paul Sieving has an excellent article in Berg Heights proposal derailed by dogma, October 22, 2005

Let's not forget that the best solution to the traffic issues in this part of town is already on the board and is actually at the top of the list for major solutions to be implemented. The Dorsey Drive interchange with Highways 49/20 has been the focus of our citizens who are truly concerned with solutions and not paralyzed by polarization.
But people do forget that actions are under way to solve the current traffic problems. They use the past to define the future without considering changes already in the works.

I saw many of these signs in Delaware on a recent trip East. They are at the beginning and the end of each section of road which is scheduled to be updated. Dates ranged from 2005 to 2008. Maybe we need similar signs at local intersections scheduled to for improvement, and on SR-49 where the Dorsey Drive Interchange will be built.


What do you think?

I can't remember how many times I spent an hour in traffic late at night in the 49 corridor out to Auburn thanks to congestion.

I commuted over 49 for 15 years, and was never delayed more than 30 min, mostly due to an accident. The Combie Rd intersectio was a problem, but that has been fixed.

When you say late at night, how late?
