Awful decision to make it a one lane road from CPP to Mt Werner Rd and then add a tiny left turn lane just before taco bell. OH thats right that allows a bike lane! Who cares about the volume of cars that will flowing through there as long as the bikes can.
A side note...the aerial pic is a nice view. Must have been early morning since there are never that few cars in the parking lot.
I second your locations Scott. Insane to put it where it is. Decision making at its finest with these city leaders.
SB Today, you might want to update this story more frequently since the fire is just a touch below 10,000 acres now and with over 500 firefighters the city has plenty of them filling hotels.
Let er burn! Of course save the homes if possible but this is natures way of renewing the land.
Ah once again the only way thru town gets blocked off and this year everything is directed onto oak. Such geniuses or wait is it called bending over for the tourist. When Lincoln was being redone a few years back and all the Fords were put in the Meadows and elsewhere things were much calmer. Even with the downtown road torn up traffic and congestion of people wasnt as bad as this who has the better car show.
As I mention yearly when will this city figure out its too big and 40 has too much coast to coast travelers to shut it down for these such events. Why do they keep approving bigger projects in town if they think its still a small town??
You would have thought some smart project manager or engineer would have said Snapdragon Way should be paved before having it be the alternate route. That road is worse than a gravel road!!!! Geniuses
Ah the Kroenke Group...maybe they are spending all thier time and attention on moving the St Louis Rams back to LA and this project is down their list!!!
Will be interesting if this changes the schedule for the contractor to not work during the summer peak season. Hell why not just make everyone mad and work til its done...oh wait we cant inconvenience the tourism thats right!!!
City Manager and City Council needs to look into Anne Small job performances. She is a clone of Deb Hinsvark and was tied to the hip of Deb in all of Debs insane management decisions. Then to say she thinks an outside city staff member could ' hijack' a meeting shows her ineptitude. Scott W can recall my frequent posts about Anne Small during the Deb era.
Let me say in advance I dont have issues with Texas as I have family there but good grief I've never seen so many Texas license plates in town the past 5 days! Is there a billboard every 1/4 mile on 1-35 in Dallas and I-45 and I-10 in Houston that only advertises Steamboat? This is the furthest ski area besides Jackson Hole for Texans to drive to. Insane.
Just like that "replant the median" con job of highway 40 a few years back so people feel more welcome to town this is just another con job by the powers at be. If they want to use their own funds to do these jobs then fine but dont ask the voters.
