Letter: Stockton Hill Road traffic solution

Another idea to cut down on the Stockton Hill traffic: Close the I-40 ramps at Stockton Hill Road.

This has been done elsewhere. We have I-40 ramps at each end of town and that is all we need to get in or out of town. No need for a traffic circle that we don't have room for.

Also, Airway Avenue could be extended to DW Ranch Road (the dirt road already exists). This could take some of the traffic that now uses the Andy Devine ramps.

Why didn't the founding fathers in their infinite wisdom make the business' install connecting streets on the back side of them. For instance: the only way to get from Wally World to Smith's is to either go out on Stockton Hill or Airway, adding to the congestion. This could be similar to what was accomplished between the Golden Corral and IHop. I know it would cost some moneys' to do it now but it might be a better solution than a roundabout.

I like the idea of extending Airway Avenue, especially when I-40 gets icy.

"Close the I-40 ramps at Stockton Hill Road."

What a great idea...because we all know travelers love driving miles on unfamiliar city streets to get some supplies for their trip or stop for lunch. And after they no longer pull off to do that, all the new food places and stores can just board up their doors and windows.

To go further...why not just close all the exit ramps including those on Andy Devine. You can leave town, but you can't come back. That would make this place just the way so many want it. Like it was "when I was growing up here".

Come on...1/2 hour of sorta heavy traffic 2 times a day 5 days a week. You can still drive from one end of town to the other in 10 min.

Yeah, so do the cattle! Another accident waiting to happen.
