I just read that the city’s new plan for the Heights is an “overpass over Sixth Avenue”! How is that going to ease traffic in the Heights? Wasn’t that the reason for the “Bench Connector Road?” That road is always jam-packed at rush hour because it’s only one lane each way! Plus it took forever to get home from wrestling last weekend because it goes by MetraPark.
When is the city going to get it? We need another road other than Main Street (two or three lanes) to get in and out of the Heights.
I have a great solution! Just build a bridge from “Hawthorne to the Highway,” so I don’t have to turn at the “Lockwood” Exit and 60. All the way back to Main Street to get home.
