I'm sure it will be a bit inconvenient during the build but once it's done I won't have to wait at a stoplight any more. Normally it's not too bad of a wait anyway. I can't even begin to count how many people I've watched driving North/South on 70 that run that red light while I'm turning and I've only been here for about a year. Too few drivers on 70 are paying attention to the light right now and it's only a matter of time before someone gets t-boned. I see someone run this light in the morning approximately once every couple of weeks.
I totally agree. We have been here for over seven years. When we first got here, there wasn't even a light. The light has improved things, but it is still a very dangerous intersection. I too, have seen a lot of folks run the light, including more than a few big rigs................ they just blow their horn and keep on trucking.
The overpass will certainly make things a lot safer and speed the rush hour commutes.
