I have read about the possibility of a major restructuring of Maple Road from Eton to Woodward. It would reduce Maple from two lanes in each direction to one each way with a center turn lane in between. Bike paths on each side also are proposed.
Given the reduction in lanes, this could result in significant spillover traffic into our neighborhood during rush hours. Even the company employed to make the design admits this is a real possibility.
The Poppleton-Oakland corridor could really be affected, but all streets leading into our subdivision are vulnerable. Granted, entry supposedly is restricted during rush hours, but enforcement is almost nonexistent.
I sent a letter to Paul O'Meara, the city engineer, and he was supportive. He said that he has some misgivings about the proposal and hoped to get citizen input. He said that it is still "not a done deal."
