I think once you take a good look at this photo you'll see that even if they put a roundabout there, it's going to be a very tight circle.
Nevertheless, if you aren't subjected to driving through this area, it's a major problem during rush hour. More interesting is how ALL OF A SUDDEN someone is interested in developing the center open area in the image above. It would be bad enough to place residential there but that's not the case. The proposed development is a commercial center.
OK, so why do I have a problem with this. Well, have you ever seen rush hour or any given busy time on Riverside drive? You tell me how ANYONE is going to be able to pull out of that center and turn left onto Riverside Drive. It will literally be impossible.
Back in the day when you had Tim Spies, Debbie Campbell and Terry Cohen on Council, they'd demand a traffic study because they know darn well this will create major traffic problems. However, the Good Ol' Boys are behind the scenes on this one, (once again) and the rubber stamp Mayor and Council will do anything to move forward with anyone interested in developing the Downtown area.
Perhaps I'm completely wrong. Perhaps the fact that Jake Day insists, (to the state) that Salisbury is a bicycle friendly City and soon enough we'll see less and less cars on the road, call me stupid.
Finally, I have to wonder, (and hopefully so will you) how much of that land is being turned over to the City for the newly proposed roundabout. One hand washes the other, right?
