    Glad I was wrong about Yancy! I have updated Google Maps, Apple and Waze yesterday so, it should direct folks back onto Yancy and alleviate a lot of the backups on Genesse and people cutting through the surrounding neighborhoods. Yay!

    Anyone have any info on trafic calming plans along SW California or 35th Ave south of Morgan junction? SW California is a mini freeway right now.  Requests for traffic calming keep getting answered with annoying softball answers of “we know that”, “we don’t have funds” “write a letter”.Weve got people passing on the shoulder at intersections, cutting the corners into the neighborhoods at high speed etc. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
