I hate to be a skeptic, but this will probably not do much to alleviate the problem but will create a traffic nightmare. West Front Street has been closed to traffic for a couple of months (maybe longer). There is no set schedule to the best of my knowledge, for completing the project. Therefore, more traffic is diverted to Rte 520 causing additional delays.

Oh no! Just like they "improved" exit 114? (sarcasm) It seems that a day doesn't go by without an accident there. Why? A poorly designed roadway which encourages poor driving behaviors. 1. no shoulders 2. painfully long left turn arrow to make left onto GSP north, even when no cars are coming opposite 3. the right on red as you exit the GSP north while still doing GSP speed 4. dangerous left turn from Van Schoick onto Dwight Road 5. dangerous left from Dwight onto Red Hill. 6. Timing on all lights and signals are skewed. What were these engineers thinking? Where was the oversight? So before doing a redesign of 109, a revisit to 114 is in order to fix the ongoing and growing problems.

I make that left from Van Schoick onto Dwight Road on a regular basis. It is VERY scary when at times there is no green arrow being used. They should always use that green arrow. I like that intersection better before the "improvement".
