Letter to the Editor

Print Article

This letter involves the recent meeting on the widening and reconstruction of the Westside road, and two simple things to consider before widening the entire road.

The first being the curve at the road and the entrance to the deep creek launch — in the winter, the dark, or fog, this curve tends to appear from nowhere. I have been in contact with several agencies for over six months in regards to this ... simply placing an arrow here will indicate the bend. But nothing has been done other than a variety of homemade arrows miraculously appear. A five-minute fix and a $30 sign would solve this.

More pressing, and perhaps before the entire road is widened, the one lane bridge needs handling. This is a definite hazard and as one of the many daily drivers of the road it all seems we have come close here. An easy solution with help from the refuge would be to remove the brush, allowing for a better line of sight through the bridge area — as would simply slowing down.

The farmers, loggers, and long-term residents of the road have it fairly well worked out between us ... we know the joggers and the bicyclists and simply pay attention.

Taking care of these items would be far better than widening the whole stretch of road, and if you cannot replace an arrow, how are you going to service some type of bike warning system? Simply a thought.

Jim Nabors and “Buster Dawg”
