Do You Think This Major Improvement is Needed in Downtown Bozeman? [POLL]
I don’t complain about much. I’m an easy going person, but some things have the tendency of getting under my skin. I live out near Bear Canyon, and always take Mendenhall into work, and Babcock when I go home.
I could take Main Street, but it’s almost impossible to make it from one end to the other without hitting every light. The solution is easy. The city could time the lights so that they changed in sequence from one to the next. I grew up Boise, and the downtown area was very similar to Bozeman when I was younger. As far as I can remember, the lights downtown always were timed. It helps a lot with the flow of traffic. Right now, it’s stop and go.
I know it’s not the end of the world, but I think it would help a lot. That’s just my opinion. As Bozeman continues to grow, it would keep the congestion out of downtown Bozeman. When someone hits the crosswalk button, the lights would still change, but a lot of times the lights change without any cars or people waiting.
What are your thoughts?
