What about Cottonwood Pass?

Dear Editor:

Regarding John Colson’s March 14 Hit and Run column: John, you are so right on with this column. To this day I cannot figure out why, with all the screaming about traffic through Glenwood’s main street, that the opening of Cottonwood Pass is not even in the mix. It solves every problem, as far as I can see. And today, with the economy in the tank, what a great project to create jobs. I say we still build that spur and also have a spur that dumps into Catherine Store Road. Mayors of Roaring Fork Valley, get to it!
