A Cheap Local Bypass Is Possible

Editor:

Sometime back, our local TV station was showing Cliff Potts talking to some of our council members about streets and bypasses. This motivated me to write a suggestion for a north/south lateral. I mentioned my idea to a council member a long time ago and have not seen any results. I think it is worth mentioning again. If Colcord from Main Street to Longhorn was made a through street with no stop signs, local traffic could use it to bypass out of town traffic on Beeline. A phase one to eliminate stop signs would have no cost involved, and a phase two with more right-of-way at intersections could accommodate turning lanes. Engineering staff, give that a thought of possible utilization. Engineering staff, please respond to this in the newspaper.
