It just makes sense

Dear Editor:The Entrance to Aspen traffic is an unhappy reality for so many of our Aspen employees and visitors. We have an opportunity next week to take an important step to improve the driving experience for everyone, and we need to do it. Please vote yes on adding a bus lane to Highway 82 from Buttermilk to the roundabout. This is especially important now so that the new Maroon Creek Bridge will be built with the bus lanes in place, and not just two lanes only for all vehicles. Approving the bus lanes will not preclude other entrance solutions in the future. This is a partial solution that can be pursued now, with no new taxes.Your friends who must drive upvalley every day and those who take the bus want this to happen. It just makes sense. Warren E. KlugAspen
