Letter: No solution, but still a problem



How do you like that?  The City Council voted 3-4 to remove the stop sign on 126th Street, so it looked like it was staying.  Some people didn’t appreciate this democratic process, so they got a re-do?

Anyway, they removed this stop sign once before and it turned 126th Street into a racetrack.

The roundabout idea at Kinzer is silly. Putting a roundabout there while also allowing the few Auman motorists a “Michigan Left” solution is no solution.

I think everyone is forgetting about the people who live on 126th Street. For several years now, it’s been nearly impossible for us to exit our own driveways!  This is a dangerous daily dilemma for us. Kashman said a traffic light could cost $150K. Well, how much could just one lawsuit cost? Brainard keeps telling us he’s a trained expert, but why didn’t he foresee this happening?

Rick Sharp says 126th Street is “becoming a popular road to take”. It became popular as soon as they built the roundabout over Keystone. This is what caused the major traffic issue on 126th Street. What’s worse is he’d like to make it four lanes, which would take a bad problem and make it worse for those living on 126th Street.

I don’t know what the solution is, but it sounds like no one else does, either. I wasn’t part of creating this problem, but I sure have to deal with it every day.
