Letter: Build a straight-shot into Aspen

Jeffrey Evans is right-on in his March 23 column (Entrance to Aspen is our self-inflicted wound,” The Aspen Times). I have said numerous times that some of Aspen’s VIP visitors or second-home owners are going to have a medical emergency and not be able to get medical help because of the congestion in and out of Aspen.

Lets avoid these potential problems and do the right thing: straight shot into Aspen on a wide, new bridge.
