Letter: Approaching gridlock

Did you see the recent article that more than 1,000 residential units and 350,000 square feet of commercial space either have been approved and are nearing construction or are under review by various governments between Basalt and south of Glenwood Springs ("1,000 residences planned along Highway 82," The Aspen Times, Nov. 19)? That puts thousands of more cars on Highway 82. Our city and county officials had better do something quick to commit to a method of solving the Aspen traffic problem. Otherwise we will soon face total gridlock.
