Page 35 of your April issue cemented my assumption that the City is being managed by a group of idiots.
The year-over-year number of housing permits issued for a community that highway infrastructure cannot support (and is currently unsafe) is astounding. And, what is going to happen when the road is resurfaced? It was a nightmare when it was resurfaced back around ’08, and is very close in need of resurface again.
One positive action – after several e-mails to ADOT, they have finally adjusted the lights at 347/Riggs in the AM, and rather than cause a 3-mile backup on northbound 347 and no backups on East-West Riggs, the northbound 347 backup is much better, and the East-West Riggs traffic is now left to “bear some pain.” PM traffic backup is still terrible. It’s no wonder patience runs thin.
I moved here in early 2002, and I clearly made a mistake in not selling my home prior to the housing crash.
