Phyllis Coletta: Traffic a problem
October 3, 2007
Steamboat Springs — I recently moved to Steamboat and I love it, but I’m confused. I can’t seem to make a left-hand turn on Lincoln Avenue – ever. Now, I came from New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the nation, and we didn’t have a lot of $30 million libraries or $34 million rec centers, but we could make left-hand turns on busy streets because of these little green left-turn arrows that probably cost about $1.50.
Given the brainpower here, I’m sure somebody has already thought of this, but I shouldn’t have to go to Oak Street to get to a light so I can cross Lincoln to Yampa. I read today that folks have been thinking about this traffic thing for four decades. Just some green arrows to start. As we say in Jersey, “I’m just sayin’.” Thanks.
