That 3 mile stretch has seen many a fatal accident. It's about time some improvements to the area are in the works. It's a main artery during rush hour traffic. Here's where the Stoneridge extension would have been a good thing to pick up some of the rush hour traffic the construction will cause. All in all it's a good thing.

We are fighting over a parcel tax that would bring in $4.5 million while spending $5.5 million to take a few telephone and power poles in order to beautify the road. I think I can find a better use for that $5.5 million, OUR SCHOOLS!

So they can't fix up the pot holes left by the old train tracks that cross stanley and get worse and worse verytime it rains yet they can spend that money by putting poles underground? Makes perfect sense to me.
