  1. I wonder when that aerial photo was taken. I believe there is a recently completed building on the southeast corner of the Tremont and Pottery intersection — at 1501 Pottery Ave. The photo shows nothing but trees.

    Maybe that’s what is meant by this statement:
    “In addition, the right-of-way needs are becoming more apparent,” said Abed, who said the city is seeking input from the public on all issues.

    I’ve wondered since seeing that building under construction how the planned widening of Tremont would be done after the building was finished. Now I see they also want a “roundabout” at that intersection.

    Oh, well, maybe there’s more room between that new building and the planned road than looks to be the case.

  2. Reviewing the planned / proposed changes to Tremont street, I see that roundabouts are being proposed for the future at the OFF/ON ramps from Hyw 16. While this may be the eventual answer to a serious safety problem it may be too far in the future. The on ramp to Hyw 16 north needs a left turn lane from Old Clifton /Tremont now. Currently left turn traffic has to stop and wait whenever Tremont traffic is comming down through the intersection. Drivers continuing through from Old Clifton or the Hyw 16 OFF ramp do not always pay attention to vehicles stopped waiting to turn left. I was rear ended there last summer and had another near miss the other day when a driver started to change lanes early and finaly noticed I was stopped waiting on traffic in order to turn left. I would highly recommend that these proposed changes be speeded up to be included in the inital improvements or a dedicated left turn lane be established in the interim to prevent future accidents.
