Route 35 concerns
Anyone who drives on US Route 35 will hope that the Beavercreek City Council will see through the misuse of facts presented by Mr. Doyle on June 23.
A truck corridor through Beavercreek? I don’t understand. The trucks already use the road, keeping them moving instead of requiring them to stop will help traffic flow, not add to accident rates.
Doyle is confusing facts when he disputes ODOT claims about traffic lights between West Virginia and Interstate 75. Doyle mentions stop lights on US 35 west of I-75, but this stretch of road is not a limited access highway.
The data quoted by Doyle for accidents makes no sense. He claims 20 accidents at Grange Hall and Col. Glenn is more significant than 100 accidents on US 35. And there is no data given to support his claim that six of the top ten crash sites are on Fairfield Road.
The proposed improvements on US 35 are needed, anyone driving this stretch of road will have horror stories of delays, near misses due to panic stops and drivers running lights. Those wanting to shop the many businesses on 35 will learn the new traffic patterns, and business will go on as usual.
