We once had a nice working cloverleaf intersection. No traffic lights or undue delays. Then some Chairborne Ranger decided traffic would move quicker if we had a bunch of traffic lights. What are you smoking man? I travel that way every day. I know construction adds time but on rainy days when no one's working it still takes seven to eight minutes longer to get from Lumpkin and Deans Bridge to Meadowbrook and Deans Bridge. And aren't you proud of what you've done to the new Fire Headquarters building? Isn't it a traffic engineer's job to facilitate the movement of traffic? Not add stops so vehicles can pollute more by idling. Don't forget, the EPA is coming to measure pollution and set us up for mandatory emissions inspections. Why does it seem that everything they do around here works against the working commuter? How about a project that will actually reduce commute times? Or is that too hard?
