A traffic suggestion
August 22, 2009
We have four lanes in and out of Aspen on Highway 82. But, we are only allowed to use one in each direction.
This past Sunday, I left my Snowmass Village home at 3:15 p.m. for the Music Tent. I got to Highway 82 on Owl Creek Road at 3:30 p.m. I was shocked to see the one lane jammed. It took me 45 minutes to get to the tent. Of course, I was late, as were many others.
The restricted bus lane had a bus every 10 minutes and a police car or two (are they allowed to use the bus lane)?
Here’s a shocking idea for local courts and state government – do something intelligent, unless that’s an “oxymoron!”
Let the bus lanes be used during peak traffic hours. Also put the traffic lights at Cemetery Lane and the golf course on “blink”; right turns only. By using the roundabout and underpass at the Maroon Club, left turns can be accomplished.
