If they could convince the city government to make Fifth Avenue usable only for certain traffic, then that`s fine. This article and most of the comments about it are about the temporary (?) Consequences during the construction period. The real parody will be the waste of time and emotional energy from the aggravated traffic jams that this transfer change from 2019 to ????. Cause. Economically, the cost of wasting overtime is measured in $billions, which will make the $70 million wasted pale in comparison. I tried to warn the city council about this starting in February 2016: Weblink A year ago, I made public comments at a cc meeting and provided this document: Weblink (abridged version above) The only council members who tried to fight this were Catherine Carlton and Ray Mueller (although they were nobler than me). PO&RC spoke to me but did not act. KK and Alex McIntyre have never responded to multiple attempts to communicate about it. In the end, the latter 4 are responsible. The disaster is not over yet. If the MPCC recognized that CalTrans` plans are flawed, it could mitigate the problem by reducing it to a clover (and using the wider bridge for good bike paths).
In politics, it is rare for people or government agencies to admit a mistake and change their plans. Usually, people need to be replaced for this to happen. Time will tell if these people will be the few exceptions. GML So Menlo is trying to get taxpayers not to use certain roads in the hope that traffic on the main roads, whose residents do not have the chance to get these delicate signs, will remain blocked. Okay, I get it. On Nov. 20, Amar Murugan, a Resident of Willows, said the installation of the signs appeared to help with traffic on Baywood Avenue, while Brian Gilmer of O`Keefe Street said he thought it was too early to tell. Arnold Way`s Ana Uribe-Ruiz said traffic has not improved because signs are not enforced and new signs on Willow Road are not coordinated enough to allow traffic to flow. If it is necessary to update the MUTCD to take into account new safety standards or operational issues, this will be done immediately, but not lightly, as changes to standard road signs can create confusion among motorists. That being said, here`s a miniature guide to most of the road signs that are now widely used in the United States.
In my area, I have only seen such signs on “private” roads and yes, it is enforced. For public residential streets, it is very common to install speed thresholds to prevent through traffic. Low weight limits are also common. Recently, signs are being installed that indicate your speed (radar panels) as reminders. Here is a concrete suggestion: 1 – Eliminate parking on Willow Road 2 – Remove light bulbs on Willow Road 3 – Prohibit cutting Willow Road during peak hours 4 – Install a reversible middle lane on Willow Road – West in AM and East in PM Reports of drastic deterioration in traffic conditions increased the week beginning November 6, after the installation of new signs at the Willow Road/US 101 intersection. Residents on the cross roads near Willow Road said they were stuck in their driveways for hours. On the way to work, there is a main thoroughfare that has been widened to accommodate the increase in traffic in an old suburb from the 1950s. They built an access road that passed the houses, with a sidewalk separating them from the lanes so that people could park and exit in front of their homes without having to enter traffic directly. During the breakthroughs, there was a white imprint on the green road signs with the inscription “No through traffic, only for residents”. Traffic is congested because of the lights and it seemed pretty silly to sit there through several light cycles if you really wanted to get to the light to turn right. Some people blew into the alleys and sometimes there was a policeman sitting there to give them a ticket. The fact is that, according to the Uniform Code for Road Signs, a green sign is informative.
It has no legal value or regulatory authority. For a sign to be legally enforceable, it must be printed in black on a white background. Sometimes I jumped into the queue when I was late and I was always ready to defend myself with the argument that the sign was only voluntary.
