Yesterday, I dare say I looked at the dumbest mapped out plans for road changes I think I have ever had the opportunity to look at. This Rosencutter/Richards Movement Changes will reroute large trucks into a corner they will have problems turning in front of the “Monument Center”. Needless to say some of the existing problems are at the “STORAGE” intersection just north/east of the bridge. So everyone on the south side of Fort Riley Blvd. is on an island now and must drive circles to go to get a drink at the FastLane.
That fancy crossover pattern will be real problems when people are headed home at night. So good job instead of one problem intersection you will now have one on each side of the cloverleaf you just built at the cost of HOW MANY MILLIONS?
No other way to say it but this is DUMB. Your problem is there needs to be a proper frontage road to access the businesses and create turning lanes in controlled intersections. Not routing traffic down the road to go in circles. But hey I know Manhappiness just loves a circle. Just put this plan in the trash and save us all some time.
I had some important mowing to do at home so I did not make the fiasco of a meeting yet today I got a report back that said the information put out was not to be released, so Oops. Then they supposedly went on to say there was no intent in doing what was reflected on the print outs I have in hand.
So my questions is, if there is no intent in changing as shown why are the employees of Manhattan doing needless drawings, research and just plain wasting time and money? Especially when it appears the direction they are headed (in my opinion) does not address the problem.
What a City Hall Blunder this one is!
Anyone else know more about this, or even care?
