Shut down this nightmare

Five reasons to vote for S-curves:

1. If they can’t have mass transit through the S-curves, how will they squeeze a train in the roundabout?

2. Nobody will pay $7 to ride a train one way! Why not spend money on free buses up and down the valley!

3. Adding the Marolt lanes, without eliminating the Snowbunny light to roundabout road would help a bit to spread cloggage out, but not just moving traffic a couple hundred feet and eliminating an under-bridge detour route.

4. A Tiehack Road-to-school/Highlands auto bridge would thin roundabout cloggage much better than the straight shot during apres-ski/school hours and for the morning commute, by giving downvalley folks another way to go!

5. The tunnel.

Until they clearly design a solution that will actually help, we’ve got to voice our opinions and shut down this expensive, ineffective, years of construction, underground nightmare!

Please vote against an irreversible shortsighted mistake.
