why dont they put in a traffic circle? it would slow people down and save lives!
Worst. Idea. Ever. I love the right/left arrows in the stretches where the only turn possible is a u-turn.
I contacted the State DOT, Steve Hawleys office as well as Mike Razenhofer's office today regarding this abomination. A representative from Mr. Razenhofer's office did some research and found out that this "well thought out" move was requested by Town of Batavia Officials as well as officials from the Genesee County Economic Development Center and was apparently signed off on by "Stafford". No public hearing, no chance to voice our opinion its just a done deal? My next question is... Who would like to sign my petition to get this fixed? That stretch of road needs to be one lane like we need more gun legislation!
Hey-it could be worse-they could've made it 1 lane BOTH ways w/ a bike lane each side......... great-now we can get frustrated going westbound when we get to follow someone going 40mph for 2+ miles-I wonder when they'll decide to add a stoplight for the ag park intersection.
Especially when the Town of Batavia doesn't own that entire stretch. As a resident of Stafford, I do not recall any hearing or vote on such. Once again another example of politics surpassing the people. Look at the last great decision they did with Route 63 in Batavia. How is that working out for all the bicyclists?
BTW, MR Mattice, I will sign.
