Chairman of Citizens for Transportation Mobility says there’s nothing his group could have said or done to get TPLOST passed. I think he’s right about that.
“I’m sure there’s some part of the campaign that we could have done better. But let’s say that moved it three percentage points? We still would have lost,” he said. “We could not overcome the bigger dynamics out there. I don’t think there’s anything we could have done that would have changed the outcome.”
Gridlock Guy: A small road improvement has a huge impact.
Last week the Georgia Department of Transportation very quietly added a row of concrete barriers dividing the lanes of Interstate 85 southbound and Ga. 400 southbound where the two roadways come together and merge heading to Midtown.
It was a small, probably inexpensive project. It was done quickly with no fanfare. However it’s impact is huge and hopefully will spread.
My biggest pet peeve when driving is when people don’t merge properly onto the freeway. It’s called “cutting the gore” and it’s not only annoying and dangerous, but it also slows down traffic.
